Broccoli with Mustard and Sesame Seeds

Broccoli with Mustard and Sesame Seeds by Carole's Chatter

Do you find yourself struggling to make broccoli interesting?  I know it's good for us but can get bored with it.

I experimented and came up with Broccoli with Mustard and Sesame Seeds

I'd happily do it again.  I par boiled the broccoli for 4-5 minutes, drained it and let it cool.  Then I patted it dry with kitchen paper towel.

Just before eating I fried up some red onion with mustard seeds and sesame seeds.  Don't get worried when the mustard seeds start popping and hopping round the pan.


Add your broccoli with salt and pepper to your taste into the pan and warm through.

  1. The mustard and sesame combo sounds interesting! I often roast my broccoli in the oven with a little olive oil and S&P to get a more interesting texture! But, you're right…I have trouble getting out of the box with broccoli.

  3. Mmmm. Sounds like a good combination to me, too, and so much better than just putting butter on the broccoli!

  4. Yes, this does sound like a good way to perk things up. I love broccoli but enjoy it more usually when someone else cooks it.

  11. You're right. It's not always easy to make broccoli a little more interesting, but this sounds like a nice combo of flavours.
