Put all of the ingredients into a bowl and stir. White sesame seeds make a nicer visual.
Add the broccoli and toss.
Here's another boiled broccoli recipe topped with mayonnaise and salmon flakes.
Story Behind this Recipe
This broccoli dresses up bland bento lunch boxes! I also really wanted to make this as a side-dish for dinner. It tastes great mixed with the sesame sauce.
Adding the mentsuyu makes it taste like you actually spent time on it. If you don't have mentsuyu, a little bit of konbu tea or dashi stock granules work too. Spinach with sesame sauce is also yummy, but why not try this too when you have some of the sauce left over?
