  • Grill pan
  • Couple of bowls



  • 2 - 2 ½ cups Broccoli Florets
  • ¾ - 1 teaspoon Oil
  • teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoon Red Onion slices
  • 1 teaspoon Hemp Seeds

Dressing (you will need only half the recipe)

  • 1 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sour Cream
  • 4 drops Dijon Mustard
  • Dash of Black Pepper Powder
  • Dash of Salt


Roast Broccoli

  • Cut broccoli into small florets. I used pre washed cut broccoli florets.
  • Toss it with oil and salt or spray cooking oil. Salt is optional here.
  • Heat a stovetop grill pan and spread the florets. Grill/cook on medium high flame for 10 minutes or until broccoli is charred and cooked. Turn the florets couple of times in between.
  • To roast in oven, preheat the oven to 425, spread broccoli on a lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, turning once in between.
  • Transfer to a bowl and let cool.

Mayo Sour Cream Dressing

  • Take all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use. You won’t need all of the dressing.


  • Add sliced onions to roast broccoli, add ½ the dressing and toss well.
  • Sprinkle hemp seeds and serve. Keep the remaining dressing on the side and in case you or the guests want more dressing.


  • Bacon is a nice add on to the salad. Cook bacon, chop into small pieces and toss it along with broccoli.
  • Nuts - Use seeds and nuts of your choice. Sliced almonds, pinenuts, sunflower seeds are a good substitute for hemp seeds.
  • Dressing - You will need only ½ the dressing mentioned above. Keep the remaining dressing on the side let people add more if anyone needs more.
  • Cheese - Feel free to throw in some grated cheese. I am not a big fan of cheese and left it out.
  • Calories - Calories mentioned above is an approximate calculation.
