Broccoli with Bon Bon Sauce

From Living Light Culinary Arts Institute and suggested by WE CSA member Gail. Thank you!
  • 5 cups small broccoli florets
  • 2 cups boiling purified water
  • 1 cup Bon Bon Sauce (see recipe, below)

Place the broccoli in a heatproof bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Keep the broccoli submerged for 1 minute, just long enough to remove the chill and turn the florets a brilliant green. Remove the broccoli from the water, immerse it in cold water, and drain well. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and serve immediately. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, leftover Broccoli with Bon Bon Sauce will keep for up to 2 days. Peel any leftover broccoli stems and use them blended in soups, diced in salads, or sliced for Crudités.

Bon Bon Sauce:

This Asian-style sesame sauce can be used on just about anything. If you thin it with water, it's a tasty salad dressing; if you use less water, it's a great vegetable dip, spread, or filling for celery sticks. Enjoy it as a dipping sauce for Vegetable Sushi Vietnamese Salad Rolls, or use it instead of mayonnaise for cabbage slaw. However you serve it, Bon Bon Sauce is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.

  • 1/2 cup raw tahini
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons agave syrup or sweetener of choice
  • 2 tablespoons wheat-free tamari
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

Combine of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Add a small amount of purified water as needed to form a thick sauce.2. Stored in a sealed glass jar in the refrigerator, Bon Bon Sauce will keep for up to 1 week.
