1 tsp vegetable bouillon powder
1 tsp cornflour
1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
1 tbsp coconut oil or mild or medium (not extra virgin) olive oil
200g (7oz) tenderstem broccoli
1 Mix all the ingredients except for the tenderstem and coconut or olive oil together in a cup. Add 2 tablespoons of water.
2 Cut the tenderstem spears into three pieces and heat the oil in a wok or large saucepan. Throw in the tenderstem and stir-fry for a couple of minutes, then soak a sheet of kitchen towel in cold water and place this over the tenderstem, to cover the pan. Put the lid on and steam-fry for a
couple more minutes, until the vegetables soften a little.
3 Pour in the sauce and allow it to come to the boil, to coat the tenderstem and cook the cornflour.
