Recipe Thursday--Lemon Garlic Broccoli

Is it "Recipe Thursday" yet?! I've been saving this one to of my friends recently sent me the recipe, and it's D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! I love all things broccoli, all things garlic, and all things lemon juice----I figure I should just tell you this now because you'll figure it out eventually when I start posting a bunch of recipes that have one, two, or all three of those ingredients in them! :) Anyways, I wish I could share her source for this simple and divine side dish--maybe she made up the recipe herself--but alas I do not know from whence it came.

Hope you enjoy it!

Lemon Garlic Broccoli

1 head of broccoli
3 T butter (vegan margarine works perfectly)
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
3 T lemon juice
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste

Steam broccoli until tender but firm, about 5 to 7 minutes. Heat the butter in a heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat; add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the cooked broccoli, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste, cooking briefly to combine.

Serve this tasty dish with a tofu steak or "chick'n breast" and a side of lightly seasoned wild rice--let the lemon garlic broccoli be the highlight tonight!
