Steamed Broccolini with Japanese Sesame Ginger Dressing

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Since it’s #meatfreemonday I thought I’d share with you a really easy dressing which you can use to make your greens taste wonderful.

I was inspired to share this recipe after a recent visit to a lovely Japanese restaurant. They served it cold but it was good. I personally like my veggies warm (especially in winter) so I made a warm version and also added some ginger. It took only 10 minutes to prepare (even shorter if you steam it in the microwave!).

By the way, if you need an encouragement to eat more veggies I highly recommend watching What The Health on Netflix. It’s truly eye opening!

I use broccolini in this one but you can use any greens you like. You can also double or triple the batch for the sauce for bigger servings of veggies.
