Broccoli with Orange Jalapeno Sauce

1 medium whole head broccoli
1/4 cup water
juice and grated rind of 1 orange
1  jalapeno, finely chopped
1/2  clove garlic
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup plain or orange-flavored club soda
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt - optional
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Remove the outer leaves and stems of the broccoli and break into florets. Wash the florets,
place in a microwave safe bowl with 1/4 cup water, cover with plastic wrap, and cook on
HIGH in a microwave for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the broccoli is tender. Or steam over hot
water on top of the stove for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender. Drain and place in a serving bowl.

While the broccoli is cooking, place the orange juice and rind, jalapeno, and garlic in a food
processor fitted with a steel blade and chop. Add the oil, club soda, nutmeg, salt, and
pepper and blend until smooth.

When the broccoli has finished cooking, heat the sauce in the microwave on HIGH for
I minute, or in a saucepan over low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Pour over the broccoli
florets and serve. Discard any leftover sauce, as it will not keep.
