Kids of all ages will gobble up their veggies when topped with a citrus-pepper butter.

2
tablespoons butter or margarine
1
small clove garlic, finely chopped
1
teaspoon grated lime peel
1
teaspoon finely chopped serrano or jalapeño chile
1/2
teaspoon salt
1
tablespoon fresh lime juice
3
cups cut-up fresh vegetables, such as broccoli florets, cauliflower florets and/or sliced carrots

Directions

  • 1 In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add garlic; cook and stir about 20 seconds. Add lime peel, chile, salt and lime juice; mix well. Set aside.
  • 2 In 4-quart saucepan, place steamer basket. Add 1 cup water; heat to boiling.
  • 3 Add cut-up vegetables to basket; cover and cook 4 to 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  • 4 To serve, place vegetables in serving bowl. Add butter mixture; toss gently to coat.
Tips  

Steaming is a healthy, easy way to cook fresh vegetables. The technique requires no added fat, and vitamins remain in the vegetables instead of leaching into the water, as can happen with boiling.
