We adore this simple preparation -- it is now our default side dish when we dine asian. The first time I steamed it in a skillet, but subsequently I steam it in a pot because it's easier for me.

Very good! Loved the flavors of the sesame oil, lemon & soy sauce and the vegetables. I ate the broccoli while my DH ate the peppers. Made for "Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game (Nov '08 - Dec '09)."
