DIRECTIONS

Place the broccoli along with 1/4” of water in a wide nonstick skillet, bring the water to a boil, reduce heat to low and place a tight-fitting lid and let the broccoli steam for about 5 minutes. Be sure not to let the water evaporate fully!

Remove the lid and turn the heat back up to medium-high to evaporate any remaining water. Add the butter and melt, quickly add the honey and lemon juice and toss to coat the broccoli, cook for an additional 2 minutes until broccoli is tender but still firm.

Add the lemon zest and toasted almonds and serve immediately.

TIP

Use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer skin from the stalks of the broccoli for best results!
