Step By Step  

Asparagus, broccolini, blueberries and lemon zest. SUMMER.

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Blueberries and vegetables? Yeah, baby. 

This idea may take a moment to get used to, but once you wrap your head around it, you'll wrap your face around it. 

Plus, it's so pretty and summery and greeeeen your body will just GLOW. Sort of. Not really. Not like a glow worm. But you'll glow within.

Anyway, blueberries on sautéed veggies! I promise promise it's amazing. The blueberries warm juuuust slightly, after sitting atop a mountain of health. It's lemony, has some good crunch with toasted panko, and a nice salty finish with Parmesan shavings. Good Lordy Lou, this is summer. 

Let's make it! It's super super simple, too.

Okay, I didn't photograph the boiling of the veggies, because I've got twins. BUT, you'll boil the veggies in a big pot of salted water for about three minutes. Then transfer them to a pan and sauté them with a little oil and garlic and lemon juice. Mmmmmm.

Tips  

Broccolini is a hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale, also sometimes called broccolette, which is smaller and thinner than broccoli. You can find it near broccoli in the produce section.
