What do you do when it’s erev Yom Tov and you need one more side dish? Tastier than plain roasted broccoli and easier than anything else that

By Chavie Shapira


It was erev Yom Tov and my mother asked me to put together one more side dish. Of course, I wanted it to be something that was very easy. So I opened up The Flavor Bible to look up what pairs well with broccoli. A few minutes later, that side dish was in the oven.

Sesame Broccoli
  • 1 (24 ounce) bag broccoli
  • Sesame seeds, for sprinkling
  • 3 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Pinch of salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients. Toss with broccoli.
  3. Spread on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20-30 minutes (depending on how frozen or thawed your broccoli is). Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
