  • 1 tablespoon Our Family olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon Our Family salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon Our Family ground black pepper 
  1. Steam carrots 1 minute; add broccoli and steam 2 to 3 minutes longer or until vegetables are crisp-tender. 
  2. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; add garlic, orange zest, salt and pepper.

Chef Tip To steam vegetables: fill saucepot with 1 inch of hot water and place steamer basket or metal strainer into saucepot. Steamer basket or strainer should fit tightly in saucepot and water should not touch the bottom of steamer basket or strainer. Cover saucepot and heat water to boiling over high heat. Add vegetables to steamer basket or strainer; cover and cook until vegetables are crisp-tender. If water boils away, add additional water as necessary.
