If you can't find gomashio in an Asian market (or the Asian aisle of your local grocery store),you can easily make your own by lightly toasting a tablespoon of sesame seeds with a pinch of sea salt in a skillet for about a minute, shaking the skillet frequently to avoid scorching the seeds.

How to Make Sesame and Lemon Broccoli

Step-by-Step

  1. Arrange a steamer basket in a large pot with about an inch of water. Cover, and bring water to a boil. Add broccoli to the steamer basket, cover and steam, tossing once or twice, until just tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer broccoli to a large bowl.
