  2. Slice red onion thinly and set aside. Do not food process the onion.
  3. Chop or press garlic.
  4. Separate broccoli florets with small stems from large, thick stem. Chop florets and stems into even 1 inch pieces. Tightly pack to measure 1 ½ cups.
  5. Let vegetables sit 5 minutes before steaming.
  6. Pulse in food processor 6-8 times until the broccoli is is small, even pieces. Remove any large pieces and process again. Be careful not to over-process, or broccoli will become mushy when cooked.
  7. Place sliced onion in the steamer, then broccoli. Cover with tight-fitting lid and steam for 5 minutes, until bright green. After 5 minutes, vegetables begin to lose their bright green color, and are over-cooked. You can add the garlic for the last minute of cooking to mellow it's flavor.
