Broccoli with Spicy Tahini

Broccoli with Spicy Tahini (Adapted from Eating Well)

16 ounces broccoli, trimmed and stalks peeled
1/3 cup tahini
1 tablespoon harissa (use less if you don't like spicy foods)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a large saucepan, add enough water to the bottom so it comes up about 1". Bring water to a boil. Cut broccoli lengthwise into thick strips. Set the broccoli in a steamer basket, place over the boiling water, cover and cook just until the broccoli is crisp tender - about 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from heat and keep 1/3 cup of the broccoli-steaming liquid.

Add tahini to a blender and with the motor running, carefully pour in the reserved hot liquid. Add in harissa, lemon juice and salt. Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour sauce over the crisp broccoli to serve.

Makes about 4 servings.
