Home » Vegetables » Broccoli Lemon with Butter


  • 1 head broccoli
  • 3 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (and grated rind)


Cut off tough leaves and stems. If stocks are thick, cut them in half lengthwise. Let soak in ice cold water with vinegar for half an hour. Drain and add 1 cup boiling, salted water. Cook 15 or 20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt butter and lemon. Drain broccoli thoroughly and serve with lemon butter. For a variation, use hollandaise sauce instead of lemon butter. Or, after draining, place broccoli in a casserole dish, dot generously with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Place under broiler flame for five minutes before serving.

Serves 4
