Method

  1. Steam the broccoli or simply boil it for 3 mins. Make a rough paste by pounding or blending the garlic, ginger and coriander stems together.
  2. Pour the oil into a hot wok or frying pan. Add the paste, then turn up the heat to full and sizzle for 1 min. Tip in the cooked broccoli, toss well and sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Turn off the heat, throw in the coriander and basil leaves, give it a stir and serve.

I made this using regular broccoli and served it with the smoked haddock and cabbage rissotto. It was delicious and we will definitely have it again. WOW and so easy peasy.

We love this recipe. I think 3 minutes is a bit too long for the broccoli we grow.
