Roasting the broccoli results in crisp edges and a just-tender bite, the perfect texture to pair with a creamy tahini sauce.
Position a rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F. Set a large rimmed baking sheet on the rack to preheat.
Cut broccoli florets into 1-inch pieces. Peel tough outer layer from the broccoli stalks, cut the peeled stalks into 2-inch-long pieces, then slice into 1/2-inch-thick planks. Toss the broccoli with oil and pepper in a large bowl.
Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on the hot pan. Roast until tender and starting to brown, 9 to 10 minutes.
Whisk tahini, lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, garlic and coriander in a large bowl. Add the broccoli, scallions and cilantro and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
