I started eating broccoli after coming to US. Broccoli is a good source of protein, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, vitamin K, folic acid and fiber. Because of its nutritional value broccoli is considered to be super veggie. It’s really hard not to like this veggie if you cook properly,overcooking them really spoils the taste.

I often make this by just blanching the veggie for couple of minutes and toss it with some noodles, pasta and serve. But this time I thought of roasting this veggie and toss it with sesame oil, soy sauce , and sesame seeds which i have adapted from here . A bowl of this healthy delicious veggie is a complete meal in itself.

    I made broccoli in a similar way but in the wok and it’s really delicious. Roasting sounds good too. Broccoli tastes better when you do not complicate it with many spices.

  22. Looks yummy.. thanks for the recipe dear !!
