Buttery Lemon Broccolini

Serves: 4

Don't overcook the broccolini. Keeping it crisp-tender seals in the nutrients and keeps it so tasty. Topped with butter and lemon, even the pickiest eaters will ask for seconds.

Dovetailing Tip: Instead of buying broccoli for Meal 4, purchase an extra bunch of brocollini. Wash and dry, then chop it coarsely and store to use in the Garlic Oil Sauteed Pasta with Broccoli.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces Broccolini and about 1 teaspoon butter mixture)

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
