"A thriving household depends on the use of seasonal produce and the application of common sense." Olivier de Serres, French agronomist
Sesame oil and broccoli are made for each other. The slight bitterness of the broccoli is well balanced by the umami flavor from the toasted sesame oil. These flavors along with the sweetness of the shallots and the roasted flavor of the cooked cashews makes for a perfect complement to almost any meal.
