Grilled Broccoli with Hummus Sauce and Roasted Sesame Seeds

This has to be one of the easiest dinner ideas ever. You only need: fresh broccoli, canned chickpeas, lemon, salt and pepper. Some fresh parsley would be nice too.

Make the humus first: add 2 garlic cloves to a can of chickpeas and the juice of half a lemon and zzzap everything together until creamy and soft. Add salt and pepper to taste, but don’t overdo it. If you’re brave add a small pinch of cinnamon and a spoon of honey to it, it’s really tasty.

Proceed to roasting the sesame seeds in a small pan. Add a teaspoon of water and the third of a pinch of salt, the keep the seeds moving in the pan until they turn a warmer brown (not black :).

On to the broccoli. Get some olive oil into the palm of your hand and rub your hands together, then massage the broccoli florets with it before grilling it. You don’t need to put too much. Grill then mix with the humus, as you would with pasta.
