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


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


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.
