  • 1 ½ pounds broccoli

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons tahini

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander

  • cup thinly sliced scallions

  • cup coarsely chopped cilantro

  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds


  1. Position a rack in bottom third of oven; preheat to 500 degrees F. Set a large rimmed baking sheet on the rack to preheat.

  2. 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.

  3. Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on the hot pan. Roast until tender and starting to brown, 9 to 10 minutes.

  4. 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
