Buttery broccoli

I was in need of vege to eat with some leftovers I was having for dinner. I had a head of broccoli in the fridge, so why not broccoli with almonds (p158)?

First, I cut the broccoli into florets and put on to boil in salted water. On the next element, I had some sliced almonds toasting in a dry frypan. Next, I prepared the dressing, melting butter and adding lemon juice, salt and pepper. The recipe says to do this in a saucepan, but I just used a jug in the microwave.

When the broccoli was cooked, I drained it and placed the florets in a serving dish. I added the almonds to the butter mixture and poured it over the broccoli.

Let's face it: pouring butter all over your veges is not the best idea, nutritionally speaking. It's a pity, then, that it's so incredibly tasty! I never would have expected that the addition of a bit of butter, lemon and almond would make such a difference. There was far more broccoli than I would generally eat in one serving, but I ate it all quite easily.

This is a pretty simple recipe, but it's a good one to keep in mind, if you want to jazz up some broccoli sometime. It's probably not best to eat it every day though!

  1. Must try it. Butter on veges was an everyday thing ofcourse before butter was outlawed. The addition of lemon sounds nice though.c
