  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 cup button mushrooms
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds


  • Conventional oven
  • Non-stick frying pan


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C/400 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Add the broccoli to the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, until lightly crispy.
  • When the broccoli is almost done, heat the sesame oil in a skillet or wok over a medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and red onion, cooking for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Add the broccoli and cook for a further 3 minutes to allow the florets to soften further.
  • Lower the heat to medium. Add the tamari, orange juice, rice vinegar, and water. Stir together for a minute or so, then add the cornstarch and cook for a further few minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • At the last minute, stir in the sesame seeds and serve.


Do not throw away the broccoli stem: you can use it in other recipes, such as salads.
