Posted by on


A cup of broccoli equals the vitamin C of an orange.This antioxidant protects your cells from damage and promotes healing in the body.


  • ·1 tbsp organic hulled sesame seeds
  • 1/2 cup organic low sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp Nama Shoyu Soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1-2 tbsp Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (or use sesame oil for the second part of the instructions.)
  • 1 pound Organic broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp minced fresh ginger


  • Toast the sesame seeds by first heating a small skillet on medium heat.
  • Add the sesame seeds and jiggle the pan so they spread out in a single layer.
  • Let them cook until lightly browned, stirring occasionally, about 3-5 minutes. Do not walk away from them while cooking, as once they start to brown they can easily burn.
  • Once lightly toasted remove from heat and put into a small bowl and set aside.
  • Mix the stock, soy sauce, and sesame oil together in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat the coconut oil (or sesame oil) on medium high heat.
  • Add the broccoli florets, stir to coat the florets with the oil, then sauté for about a minute.
  • Clear a space in the middle of the broccoli and add the ginger and garlic.
  • Add a little more oil to the ginger and garlic (about a teaspoon) and sauté for half a minute, stirring just the garlic and ginger, until fragrant.
  • Then stir the garlic and ginger in with the broccoli.
  • • Add the vegetable stock mixture, bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat and cover.
  • Let cook for 2-3 minutes, until broccoli is still firm but can be pierced with a fork.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Remove broccoli with a slotted spoon to a bowl.
  • Return the pan to the heat, increase heat to high and boil down the liquid until just a couple tablespoons remain.
  • Turn off heat, return broccoli to the pan
  • Add the toasted sesame seeds and toss with the liquid.
  • Once the broccoli is well coated, add to a bowl and serve.
