quick boiled broccoli and stems with toasted sesame seeds

yesterday i ate a terrible breakfast and lunch, so i figured dinner should call for some clean food!

1 bunch broccoli
2T flax seed oil
1t ume plum vinegar (i substituted with rice vinegar because i could not find the ume plum)
2T toasted sesame seeds

cut broccoli florets from stems. chop florets into pieces and place in pot. trim and discard dry ends from broccoli stems. peel, discard outer skins, chop stems and add to pot with florets. add 2 inches of water, cover, bring to boil and cook 2-3 minutes or until bright green and just tender. drain water and toss broccoli with flax seed oil and vinegar. sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

i served this over a bed of quinoa.

give credit: clean food
