‘Goma-ae’ Sauce, which is a sweet sauce of ground toasted sesame seeds, goes very well with many vegetables. My ‘Goma-ae’ recipes are so easy. If you like Edible Chrysanthemum, you got to try this one. Edible Chrysanthemum is available from most Asian grocery stores, but I recently discovered it at an Italian green grocery store!
250 to 300g Shungiku (Edible Chrysanthemum)
Toasted Sesame Seeds 2 tablespoons *ground
Sugar 1 tablespoon
Soy Sauce 2 tablespoons
- Grind Toasted Sesame Seeds, OR use this trick ‘How To Grind Sesame Seeds Using A Plastic Bag’. Add Sugar and Soy Sauce and mix well to make sauce.
- Wash Edible Chrysanthemum well and blanch in boiling water. Dip in cold water to stop cooking further, drain well and squeeze to remove excess water. *Note: Thick stems need to be cooked longer. Leaves can be easily over cooked.
- Cut into 5cm length and mix with Sauce.
