Easy way to "fancy up" broccoli. We loved it..

Step 1

Blanch the broccoli in boiling water.

Step 2

Whilst broccoli is still hot from blanching, heat the butter and extra virgin olive oil in a pan until a light brown colour.(Using olive oil inhibits the burning of butter).

Step 3

Add roasted almond flakes and toss.

Step 4

Place blanched broccoli in pan and pour over with juice of the lemon, and use seasonings to taste. Serve.

Review by Mikekey

Great broccoli side! I enjoyed with grilled steak and chicken. Made for 2 and there were no leftovers....always a good sign!


Review by breezermom

Very flavorful and easy! Instead of blanching my broccoli, I microwaved it for 5 minutes (700 watt microwave). Great tip about the olive oil! Tagged for Pick Me game, due Feb 21.
