Lemon and Almond Broccoli

I found this recipe when searching for a new way to prepare broccoli.  It was light, and the lemon added a fresh taste that made me feel healthier somehow. With a couple of very minor changes, I enjoyed the result.  I'm not sure it's one that I'll make all the time, but it was definitely nice to have a change of pace in the broccoli department.  Lemon and Almond Broccoli is a nice summery side dish.

Lemon and Almond Broccoli

1 head fresh broccoli, cut into florets
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup slivered almonds
Salt and pepper

1. Steam or boil broccoli until tender.  Drain water and return to pan.
2. Add butter, and mix it all around in the hot pan until the butter is melted and evenly distributed.  Add lemon juice, almonds, salt, and pepper, and toss to coat evenly.
3. Serve as a light side to a heavier main dish.
