Broccoli is usually dressed up with cheese sauce (which I love just as much as anyone!) to make it shout out at dinner time and for good reason, it is delicious! Tonight we enjoyed a different flavor and it is will become a family favorite as well.
|Broccoli Dressed with Curry Butter|
When I grabbed the broccoli out of the refrigerator to cook it up for dinner, I remembered the Curried Broccoli Salad I had made some time back. I had actually purchased this broccoli to make that salad up, once again. But then.....
That plan changed a bit, when we had company over the weekend. Our daughter and Son in Law arrived for a visit with a satchel full of food from their garden to share. We had a fun packed weekend and I was happy to cook with my daughter.
But I got to thinking about the broccoli, and this side dish came from that exercise. And I must tell you, the flavor is wonderful and the technique, next to nothing! If you like curry, you will enjoy this broccoli side dish. If you are new to curry, this is the perfect starting place.
Broccoli Dressed with Curry Butter
by the seat of my pants
3 "stalks" broccoli, lower stems peeled, sliced 1/4 inch thick and the top made into florets
2 T butter
1 t sugar (don't leave out, it carries the curry flavor)
1 1/2 - 2 t curry powder (we used Sweet Curry from Penzy's)
Blanch the broccoli in boiling water until crisp tender, drain well in a colander.
In the cooking pan, melt the butter, add the sugar and curry powder, stir well to combine. Return broccoli to pan, toss with the curry butter.
