Ingredients

Mojo:

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 teaspoon kosher salt

Vegetables:

1/2 bunch broccoli, cut in large florets

1/2 bunch cauliflower, cut in large florets

2 carrots, cut in thick slices

1 yellow or zucchini squash, cut in thick rounds

1/2 to 1 head fennel, cut into thin wedges

1 bunch asparagus

8 cloves garlic

1 bunch scallions

Directions

  1. For the sauce: Put the garlic and olive oil in a small microwave-safe bowl and microwave on HIGH until the garlic is golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lime juice, cilantro, and salt and set aside until ready to serve.
  2. For the vegetables: Pour 1-inch or more of water in a wok or skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Place the vegetables in a bamboo or collapsible steamer. Set the steamer over the boiling water, cover, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or just until the vegetables are crisp tender. Serve warm or at room temperature with the sauce.
