Recipe for sesame roasted broccoli

Sheryl Julian/Globe Staff

Serves 4

1 large broccoli crown
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

1. Set the oven at 400 degrees. Have on hand a rimmed baking sheet.

2. Cut the broccoli into large florets, then slice through the florets so each one has a flat side. In a bowl, toss the florets with the vegetable oil, salt, and pepper. Transfer to the baking sheet and spread them out. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

3. Roast the florets for 15 minutes, turning once, or until they begin to char at the edges and are tender when pierced with the tip of a knife. Sprinkle with sesame oil.
