  • 3 oz 85 g package ramen noodles, crushed

  1. Chop broccoli to make bite-sized pieces. Combine with green onions in a large bowl.
  2. Pour the 2 tablespoons (30 mL) oil into medium skillet over medium low heat. Add sesame seeds and crushed noodles (save seasoning packet in package for another use). Cook and stir until noodles begin to turn golden brown. Add to broccoli mixture.
