Broccoli or Cauliflower with a Soy-Lemon Dressing

Recipe by Hey Jude
READY IN: 20mins




  • Using a sharp paring knife, peel the tough skin from the broccoli stems and cut away the stem ends.
  • Cut off the florets and cut the peeled stems on the diagonal into 1 1/2-inch thick sections.
  • Separate the larger florets so that all are approximately the same size.
  • If cooking cauliflower, remove any leaves and break or cut into florets, about 1 1/2 inches wide.
  • Arrange the broccoli or cauliflower in a steamer tray, or on a plate set on a rack.
  • Fill a wok or pot with several inches of water and heat to boiling.
  • Place the vegetable over the boiling water and steam 6-8 minutes, or until tender.
  • I like my veggies crisp tender so I steam mine just a few minutes.
  • Steam them till they're the way you like, check after 3-4 minutes.
  • Drain any water from the broccoli or cauliflower.
  • Put the vegetable in a serving bowl, add the dressing, toss lightly and serve.
