  • 2 1⁄2 cups fresh or frozen broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

While broccoli cooks, toast sesame seeds in a 1 quart saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly and cook until light brown.
Carefully add oil, vinegar, soy sauce and sugar to sesame seeds. Heat to boiling.
Pour sauce over hot, drained broccoli. Stir to coat and serve immediately.
