Recipe Ingredients for Steamed Veggies with tomato basil dressing

1/2 bunch broccoli
1/2 head cauliflower
2 carrots, cut in thick slices
1 yellow squash, cut in thick rounds
1 cup fennel, cut into thin wedges
2 cups asparagus
8 cloves garlic
6 scallions
4 tomatoes, ripe medium halved
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, smashed
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 pinch black pepper, ground
1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed

Recipe Directions for Steamed Veggies with tomato basil dressing

  1. For Veggies: Pour an 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 dressing

  2. For the sauce: Scoop the flesh and juices of the tomatoes out of the skins with a spoon into a bowl; discard the empty skins. Whisk in the vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes, breaking up the tomato as you do. Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a chunky, slightly thick dressing. Roughly chop the basil and stir into the dressing. Set aside for 15 minutes to let the flavors come together. Remove the garlic.
