Broccoli flowerettes are steamed with tarragon leaves, tossed with butter, and seasoned with salt and pepper for an easy, flavorful vegetable side dish.

  • Servings: 4

Ingredients:

2 heads Broccoli
1 bunch Fresh Tarragon
1 Tbsp Butter
Salt & Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Directions:

Rinse broccoli and tarragon in cold water. Break the broccoli into florets. Pull tarragon leaves from the stems and tear to release flavor. Place broccoli and tarragon in a vegetable steamer and steam for 4-5 minutes. Broccoli should still be bright green and stems should pierce easily with a fork. Toss with butter to coat broccoli. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.

Helpful Tips:

I had some extra fresh tarragon in my fridge that was starting to wilt. I had some broccoli for a side dish and tossed the tarragon in on a lark. I was pleasantly surprised when I tasted the outcome.
