How to power steam

Print this recipe
The idea of power steaming is to cook the inside of a vegetable while charring the outside. This video demonstrates how to power steam broccolini, which is similar to broccoli but has smaller florets and longer, thinner stems.
A little lemon juice and carefully selected oil enhance the vegetable's flavor. By using the oil, you double up on cooking the veggie by steaming and stir-frying it. Canola, sunflower seed and avocado oil are high-heat oils, so watch out for oil pops.
