Lemony Broccoli With Almonds
Makes 4 servings
1 head fresh broccoli, cut into florets
1 Tablespoon trans-fat-free margarine
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 cup blanched slivered almonds, toasted*
Steam broccoli until tender, approximately 4 to 8 minutes. Drain.
In a small saucepan, melt margarine over medium-low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and almonds. Pour over hot broccoli, and serve.
*To toast the almonds, spread them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 5-8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes. Watch the almonds carefully — they will burn quickly. Cool for 1 hour.
