Sesame Broccoli

Sesame Broccoli
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
Broccoli, fresh or frozen 1 pound
Lemon juice 1 tsp
Soy sauce 1 tsp
Roasted sesame oil 1/2 tsp
Sesame seeds 1 tsp
Steam broccoli briefly and place in serving bowl.
Mix lemon juice, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Sprinkle over broccoli and then toss.
If you are serving this as a cold summer salad, refrigerate for several hours.
Otherwise serve immediately, sprinkling sesame seeds for garnish.

Note: There are two kinds of sesame oil sold. One, a light golden color, is used as you would use any cooking oil. Dark or roasted sesame oil is a flavoring ingredient that can be purchased in Asian grocery stores and in some supermarkets in the ethnic foods section. Don't try to substitute one for the other. The darker oil has a very powerful flavor.
