    Broccoli with miso sesame dipping sauce

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

    Serves: 6


    3 tbsp sesame seeds

    1 tbsp light soy sauce

    1 tbsp caster sugar

    1 tbsp Japanese rice vinegar

    1 tbsp mirin

    3 tbsp sweet white miso

    2 x 220g packs Tenderstem broccoli spears, trimmed


    1. In a small frying pan, slowly toast the sesame seeds over a low heat until golden, about 4-5 minutes. Reserve a large pinch of the seeds to decorate, and grind the remainder in a pestle and mortar (or in the small bowl of a food processor) until fine. Mix in the soy, sugar, vinegar, mirin and miso; set aside. 

    2. Bring a pan of slightly salted water to the boil. Blanch the broccoli for 2-3 minutes, or until just tender. Drain, rinse in cold water, then pat dry on kitchen paper.

    3. Transfer to a serving platter, sprinkle over the reserved sesame seeds and serve alongside the dipping sauce.
