Just a little seasoning is all it takes to turn broccoli into something special!

Ingredients

3
cups broccoli flowerets
1/2
cup diced red bell pepper
2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
garlic clove, finely chopped
1
teaspoon lemon juice
1/8
teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1 Heat 6 cups water to boiling in 2-quart saucepan. Add broccoli. Heat to boiling; boil uncovered 2 minutes.
  • 2 Add bell pepper to saucepan. Boil 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Drain; remove from saucepan.
  • 3 Add butter to saucepan. Cook garlic in butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until golden. Stir in lemon juice and salt. Return broccoli mixture to saucepan; toss to coat.
Tips  

Have you tried broccoflower, the new vegetable that’s a hybrid of broccoli and cauliflower? This side dish is just as tasty and pretty if you use broccoflower instead of the broccoli.

Skip the garlic chopping, and use 1 teaspoon of finely chopped garlic from a jar instead.
