“This is another great, easy, tasty, healthy recipe that I adapted from A Spoonful of Ginger by Nina Simonds.”

Ingredients Nutrition


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