Lemony Broccolini


Every once in awhile Lisa makes me eat something “healthy“, I’ve tried again and again to convince here that Bacon is where vitamin B comes from, but she’s just not buyin’ it.  So, I saw this one on Food Network’s “The Pioneer Woman” show. It’s another one of those easy recipes that really tastes great and Lisa says it’s even healthy.  Go figure!

Use These…
  • 2 bunches broccolini
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Grated zest and juice of 2 lemons

 

Do This…

Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

Mince the garlic, then zest and Juice the lemons. It’s important to zest the lemons before you squeeze them, trust me on this, I have experience (there may have been copious amounts of wine involved). Also remember, when zesting (oooo, i created a verb!) a lemon you only want the bright yellow part,  try not to include the pale spongy part of the skin.  Be gentle here.

Prepare an ice water bath.
