1. In a Cuisinart® food processor fitted with the metal blade, process garlic, ginger, jalapeño and scallions until finely chopped, about 20 - 30 seconds. Insert the 4mm slicing disc and place the broccoli stems in the large feed tube. Slice using medium pressure; reserve. 2. Using the metal blade, process soy sauce, sherry, sugar, sesame oil, black pepper and red pepper flakes until combined. Reserve. 3. Heat canola oil in a Cuisinart® Non-stick stainless 10-½-inch Stir-Fry Pan over medium-high heat. Add scallion/broccoli mixture and sauté until wilted, about 1 minute.
