Tasks For Kids 

  • Help cut vegetables into pieces (with adult supervision) 
  • Combine soy sauce, sesame oil, honey and garlic (Step 5)

  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds 

 

Tips

 

  • To toast sesame seeds, stir seeds in a small dry frying pan over a medium heat until golden.
  • Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for 30 minutes before threading with vegetables. This helps to prevent them charring during cooking.
