Ingredients
  • 3 carrots, peeled and cut on the bias into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 8 spears asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch florets
  • 1/4 head broccoli, cut into 1-inch florets
  • 1 tablespoon sesame-chile oil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions
  • Special equipment: a metal steamer basket

  • Fill a large pot with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil over medium heat. Arrange the carrots, asparagus, cauliflower and broccoli in a metal steamer basket; place in the pot and cover. Steam the vegetables until slightly tender but still with a little crunch, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • While the veggies are steaming, heat a small saute pan over medium heat. Add the sesame-chile oil, olive oil, garlic and pepper flakes, and cook for 1 minute.

  • Transfer the steamed vegetables to a bowl. Add the sesame-chili oil mixture and the lemon juice, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss to coat the vegetables evenly. Serve immediately.
