IMG_3901

I have been going mad for greens – especially on hot summer nights. Super healthy and super yummy what is there not to like when you mix those yummy greens with nuts and seeds.

Ingredients for the Salad

2 large cloves of garlic chopped
2 flowers of broccoli chopped
1 bunch of broccolini chopped
1 large handful of spinach leaves chopped
10 baby tomatoes quartered
1 small handful of mint leaves chopped
1 small handful of chives chopped
A generous handful of sesame seeds
A generous handful of almonds
A generous handful of flaked almonds

Ingredients for the Sauce

1/2 cup of tahini
A good splosh of soy sauce
A good splosh of lemon juice
1 heaped teaspoon of sugar
Water to thin to desired consistency

To Create

Gently fry the chopped garlic cloves, the stalky ends of the broccoli and broccolini that are good to eat until the broccoli is nearly cooked then add all the seeds and nuts and continue to stir fry until these are brown then set aside

Stir fry the broccoli and broccolini until cooked but not soggy.

Combine all ingredients, the chopped tomatoes, spinach, mint leaves, chives, nuts and broccoli mix.

Serve with the sauce on the side.
