Simple and super healthy. My mum swears by this to help her arthritis - she could be right, ginger is an anti inflammatory.

  1. Steam the broccoli until tender.
  2. Pound or blend together the garlic, ginger and coriander (stems only - reserve the leaves).
  3. Heat the oil into the pan and add the paste sizzle for 1 minute.

WOW! Simple and oh so yummy! Thanks for sharing your family recipe! I may try toasting the (black) sesame seeds next time to bring out their flavor. I love the added corinader/ cilantro leaves and basil leaves at the end.

This makes an easy and tasty broccoli dish...one that will please everyone. I particularly liked the sesame seeds with it. Great combination of flavors. Thanks for sharing this, Pink Cherry Blossom. It's a keeper.

We enjoyed this Cherry Blossom, not sure what a bunch of fresh coriander is but I used about 1/4 cup for this, also I increased the sesame seeds thanks for sharing...Kitten:)
