Steamed Broccoli

The steaming method produces a tender, bright-green product but avoids a water-logged, mushy vegetable that can easily result when boiling is used.
10 oz (300 g) fresh broccoli
2 T (30 ml) low-fat margarine or butter
1 t (5 ml) salt
2 T (30 ml) lemon juice
Trim away the tough base and cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Place in a shallow bowl and top with salt, lemon juice, and the fat. Place into a steamer, cover tightly, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, testing for doneness when the tip of a paring knife penetrates easily. Toss to distribute the flavorings and serve in the bowl it was steamed in.
