Roasted broccoli tender stems with sesame seeds

roasted broccoli

This is just a reminder really – if you are cooking things in the oven then why not do everything in the oven.

These are broccoli tender stems, roasted on a metal tray with a little olive oil and then when served scattered some sesame seeds over to add a bit of visual

The roasting adds a great flavour to the broccoli and the finer parts become charred and slightly caramelised

simply place the tender stems on a metal tray and toss in a little olive oil and and roast for 15 mins in a hot oven

they are done when the finer parts are starting to burn.

tip: slice the thicker ends to reduce the thickness of the stems, which will help with the cooking.

serve with a sprinkle of sesame seeds
