Thrifty.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Broccoli 2 Pound
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Green onions 4 , trimmed and chopped
  Sweet red pepper 1⁄2 , cored, seeded and chopped
  Lemon 1 Medium (Use Grated Rind And Juice)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
Directions

1. Trim the leaves and coarse stem ends from the broccoli. Cut the stems into 3/4- inch pieces and the florets into 1-inch pieces.
2. Bring about 1 inch of lightly salted water to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan. Add the broccoli and cook, covered, for about 5 minutes, or until it is crisp-tender.
3. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a 6-inch skillet. Add the green onions and the sweet red pepper and cook, uncovered, over moderately low heat about 5 minutes, or until soft.
4. Remove the skillet from the heat. Add the lemon rind, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Drain the broccoli in a colander, put it into a serving dish, and toss it with the green - onion-red-pepper mixture.
