Broccoli with Ginger-Orange Butter

This is my favorite way to eat broccoli. It's so simple and super delicious. I buy 3 lb. bags of broccoli florets at Costco so we eat broccoli a lot around here. It just seems to go with everything! Of course, peanut butter chocolate brownie bites go well with everything too.

Broccoli with Ginger-Orange Butter
3/4 lb fresh broccoli florets
1 tbsp. orange marmalade, low sugar
1 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
1/8 tsp. ground ginger

Steam broccoli in pan with about 1/3 cup water. Simmer for about 5 - 8 minutes until crisp tender. In a small bowl, combine marmalade, butter, vinegar and ginger and microwave for about 30 seconds until butter is melted. Drain broccoli if needed and drizzle with butter mixture.

  1. I love broccoli any way I can get it. If I'm uninspired I just roast it with some cooking spray, salt and pepper until its crisp and delicious. I really like the ginger-orange butter idea though. Have to try it!
