Lemon Butter Broccoli Spears

For most cooks, it’s difficult to get the family to eat broccoli. Here’s a delicious recipe that might help.

Lemon Butter Broccoli Spears
4 servings


- 1 bunch broccoli (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
- 5 teaspoons unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated black pepper


- Cut the broccoli into spears discarding the thick end.

- Steam or cook the broccoli till tender; remove.

- Melt the butter in a large non-stick fry pan over med-high heat.

- When butter foams, add the lemon juice and cook for 30 seconds.

- Add the broccoli, lemon zest, salt, and pepper; cook tossing for 1-2 minutes till broccoli is well-coated.

NOTE: For a quick alternative, cook 2 (10-ounce) boxes frozen broccoli spears according to package directions, and then follow the recipe as written.

I added cauliflower to the recipe
