Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 20 min


  • head of a broccoli
  • 120 g of green (French) beans trimmed (without their end tips)
  • 180 g peas (mange tout) trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 20 g coriander leaves
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon black and white sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon nigella seeds
  • Sauce
  • 50 g tahini paste
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamari soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • salt



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


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


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


Blanch the beans al-dente for 4 minutes


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


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


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


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


Add most of the coriander and the seeds and mix well


Pour the sauce on top with the remaining coriander and seeds
