Summer Fresh Sesame Broccoli from Martha Stewart

Total Time

Finding easy and tasty side dish recipes is becoming more important to me than it used to be. I'm always on the look-out for broccoli recipes, so when I saw this one in Martha Stewart's little recipe magazine, I was thrilled & clipped it immediately. Try this with grilled steak or pork tenderloin.


  1. Preheat oven to 450*.
  2. Spread florets on baking sheet, drizzle oil over and toss to spread evenly.
  3. Roast for 20 minutes (browned).
  4. Toss broccoli with remaining ingredients.
  5. HOW TO TOAST SESAME SEEDS: place seeds in a metal pie plate, placed in oven with broccoli OR toast in a frying pan on the stove top. Watch carefully as they can burn mighty quick and don't taste a bit good like that!
  6. ALTERNATIVES: Toast some slivered almonds with the sesame seeds and add 2-3 T. with the seeds. Yumm-a-licious!

Yummy! I love roasted veggies but don't think that I have roasted broccoli before. This came out so good - it will be served in my house often. Thanks for sharing Debber. Made for Chef Alphabet Soup tag.
