--Broccoli with Lemon and Garlic
Broccoli with Lemon and Garlic
500 3-Ingredients Recipes Copyright 2004
4 cups broccoli florets
1 tablespoon minced garlic I used two cloves
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 tablespoons butter I used about a tablespoon
Put 2 quarts salted water in a 4-quart pot and bring to a boil. In a small saucepan heat the garlic, lemon juice, and butter over low heat, until the butter is melted. When the water boils, drop in the broccoli florets and cook them for 4 to 5 minutes, until cooked through, but still crisp. Drain the broccoli and toss with the sauce in a large bowl.
I got sick before I could finish planning this week's recipes over the weekend so I had to scramble something up for today at the last minute. It wasn't really anything special, to be honest. I keep forgetting that I'm not all that crazy about broccoli and garlic together. I'd rather dip plain steamed garlic in Tiger Sauce (and I just scored six bottles of it at a grocery store near my parent's house).
I'm having an off week. It happens. It doesn't help that between the cold and the cold medication, my appetite isn't what it usually is. My husband is also sick and I think my son is coming down with it too. I'm just treading water this week.
This cookbook hasn't yielded any great recipes yet. There are 497 recipes I haven't tried yet, so there may be a winner in there somewhere.
Blast From The Past: Creamy Italian Pasta Salad from April 2006. I wanted to make pasta salad this week but I don't think I'm going to get to it.
Question of the Day: How do you prefer to eat broccoli (or don't you care for it at all)?
