‘Mock Zha Cai‘ and ‘Nuta Salad’ are lovely ways to use up Broccoli Stems. Here is another recipe for you to try. This is a Korean inspired Sesame & Garlic flavoured salad. This salad is also really good for drinking.
1 to 2 Servings
2 Broccoli Stems *about 150g
1 small clove Garlic *grated
1 pinch Salt *alter the amount to suit your taste
1/4 teaspoon Soy Sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon Toasted Sesame Seeds
1/4 to 1/2 Toasted Nori *torn into small pieces
Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix) OR Ground Chilli *optional
- Combine Garlic, Salt, Soy Sauce, Sesame Oil and Toasted Sesame Seeds in a mixing bowl.
- Remove the tough outer parts from Broccoli stems, and thinly slice. Cook in the boiling water for 15 to 20 seconds, drain well, then add to the Garlic & Sesame mixture. Combine well and set aside to cool.
- Place Nori on top and sprinkle with Shichimi (Japanese Chilli Spice Mix). Mix to combine when you eat.
