Quick Salad with Broccoli and Buckwheat

To make the salad you need:

  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2-3 tbsp sesame seeds
  • Half a cup of buckwheat
  • salt
  • A spoonful of olive oil

In a frying pan, lightly toast the sesame seeds. Cook the buckwheat according to the previous instructions and divide the broccoli into florets, then put them in a deep pan and add some water.

If the broccoli is ready and there is water left in the pan, pour it off so that the dish is not too watery.
