Goma-ae (Green Veggies with Aromatic Toasted Sesame)

Goma-ae is one of the most popular Japanese side dishes of all time, enjoyed as a side dish for any occasion. Green vegetables like broccoli and snap peas are the best for this simple and healthy dish, to match the savory flavor of the roasted sesame, but we also love it with green beans.

Author's Notes

Instead of broccoli and sugar snap peas, you can use any seasonal green vegetable, such as green beans.

If you have no mortar or want to skip the first two steps, you can substitute with 80 g of sesame paste or even tahini.
