This chili oil enough for 1-1/2 bunches (about 4 stalks) of steamed broccoli. Trim the florets into pieces about 1-1/2 inches long. Peel away any tough part at the bottoms of the stalks, then slice stalks on the diagonal into 1/2-inch slices. Steam the slices for 2 minutes, then add the florets and steam an additional 5 minutes. Drain, toss with Chili Oil (recipe follows), and serve immediately. To steam ahead, rinse the broccoli in cold water immediately after steaming to stop cooking. Drain well and store refrigerated in a tightly sealed zip-top plastic bag. When ready to serve, toss with the dressing and reheat briefly over medium heat in a large skillet. Serve immediately. How much of the white vein-like material that holds the seeds in the pepper you include determines the heat imparted by the pepper. This is a vinaigrette without the vinegar. Some flavor components dissolve in oil and some in water or water-type liquids like vinegar. This recipe contains both oil and water to carry more flavors. The water replaces vinegar to prevent acidity from discoloring the vegetables (see Notes).
