Char-grilled Broccoli with Tahini Butter

- Advertisement -

Make sure you cater generously with the broccoli, my family of 5 would happily devour 2 heads of this broccoli in a sitting.
Extra tahini butter can be stored in the fridge, dollop onto grilled meats and other vegetables.

Yield: 4


  • 1-2 heads broccoli, stem trimmed to remove tough fibres and then cut lengthwise into long stems
  • olive oil
  • 75g butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon tamari soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • black or white sesame seeds


Heat a griddle pan, frying pan or barbecue hot plate and cook the broccoli with a film of oil over a high heat until slightly coloured and just tender.
At the same time place the remaining ingredients (not sesame seeds) into a small blender and process until smooth.
Serve the broccoli with dollops of tahini butter and scatter with sesame seeds.
