Food Processor Method of Preparing Asian-Style Broccoli
Fill the bottom of the steamer with 2 inches water and heat, covered.
You will need a food processor with at least an 8 cup capacity. Use the s-blade.
Slice red onion thinly and set aside. Do not food process the onion.
Chop or press garlic.
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.
Let vegetables sit 5 minutes before steaming.
Pulse in food processor 6-8 times until the broccoli is in small, even pieces. Remove any large pieces and process again. Be careful not to over-process, or broccoli will become mushy when cooked.
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.
Transfer to a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients.
