Instructions

1

Let's start with the sauce. Whisk all the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoons of water until you get a honey-like consistency. You can fix it by adding extra water or tahini if needed

2

Remove the florettes of the broccoli and cut them in two on vertical

3

Boil the water in a medium size pot (don't add any salt)

4

Blanch the beans al-dente for 4 minutes

5

Lift the vegetables out of the water with a slotted spoon and transfer them to a colander and run them under plenty of cold water

6

In the same water boil the peas for 2 minutes, remove them and refresh them under cold water

7

Repeat with the broccoli, cooking it for 2-3 minutes

8

Once the vegetables are cooked and dry, mix them in a bowl with the olive oil

9

Add most of the coriander and the seeds and mix well

10

Pour the sauce on top with the remaining coriander and seeds
