Steamed Broccoli With Lime Dressing

Source: Everyday Food, September 2005

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 pounds (1 large bunch) broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Prepare broccoli: Cut off and discard tough ends of stalks, leaving about 2 inches attached to the florets. Using a paring knife, cut broccoli lengthwise into pieces. With a sturdy vegetable peeler (or sharp knife), peel away the tough outer layer from the stalks. In a large pot fitted with a steamer basket, bring 1 inch of water to a boil. Add broccoli pieces in a single layer. Cover, and steam until tender, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together lime juice and sesame oil; season with salt.

  3. Add broccoli to dressing; toss lightly to coat. Serve immediately.
