50g peeled sesame seeds
4 sticks of celery
3 tbsp rape seed oil
Himalayan crystal salt or celtic sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
Roast the sesame seeds in a frying pan without using any oil at low heat until golden brown. Stir occassionally.
Peel the carrots, clean them and cut into thin pieces. Cut off the flower heads from the broccoli stalk. Peel the stalk and cut into small pieces. Wash the broccoli flower heads.
Remove the outer leaves of the leeks, cut off the end parts and the dark green leaves. Cut each leek into halves, wash them thoroughly and cut them into strips. Remove the leaves, end parts and hard strings of the celery sticks, wash them and cut them into thin slices.
Either gently steam the carrots, celery and the broccoli or bring water to the boil in a large pot with a pinch of salt and quickly blanche the vegetables in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Put the vegetables into a colander, briefly pour cold water over them and drain the water.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan or Wok. Add all the vegetables and stir-fry them at medium heat for about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle the roasted sesame seeds over the dish.
