Charred Broccoli with Tahini Dressing

Broccoli may not be the first side dish you think of when considering your BBQ spread but we urge you to rethink. We love the vibrant crunch of tenderstem combined with the distinctive roasted sesame flavor and nutty texture of tahini.

Ingredients & instructions


  • 600g tenderstem broccoli
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper


  • 3 tbsp good-quality tahini, we use Belazu
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Pinch of sea salt & cracked black pepper


  • 1 tbsp mixed seeds, toasted
  1. Heat up a griddle pan on the hob or BBQ to medium heat. Place the tenderstem in a bowl and drizzle over the oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss the broccoli to ensure the stems are completely coated in oil.
  2. Place the broccoli on the griddle or grill and char the broccoli until tender. If the stems are starting to burn on the high heat, move them to the outside of the bbq or pan and allow to coat through using indirect heat.
  3. Whilst the broccoli is cooking, make the tahini dressing. In a bowl combine all the ingredients and whisk together. If the dressing is a little thick, pour in a little ice-cold water to loosen. Whisk again to create a smooth glossy dressing.
  4. Place the charred broccoli in a bowl and drizzle over the dressing. Finally, sprinkle with the toasted seeds and serve.
