  • 2 tbsp water

  • 2. Lebanese Tahini Sauce
  • 1Add the tahini paste, lemon juice, crushed garlic, and salt to a small bowl. Whisk them together.

  • 3. Lemon Verbena Lemonade
  • 1In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Stir the mixture constantly to dissolve the sugar.
  • 2Remove from heat and add lemon verbena. Slightly cover the saucepan to steep for 15 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, and let cool to room temperature.

  • 4. Lemon and Garlic Broccoli
  • 1In a small cup, mix well water and lemon juice.
  • 2In a large pan over medium heat, add broccoli florets and the lemon-water mixture. Coat the broccoli with the mixture well. Cover the pan and let steam for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • 3In a different pan, melt the butter over low heat. Saute the garlic and salt until fragrant and golden brown.
  • 4Drain the broccoli and add the melted butter and garlic mixture to the pan. Stir again and season with salt and pepper to taste.
