I'm taking my kitchen paperless (at least as far as non-bound recipes go) so welcome to my cookbook in a blog!

Garlicky Crumb-Coated Broccoli

Garlicky Crumb-Coated Broccoli
From around my french table.

1 1/2 - 2 pounds broccoli, trimmed and cut into 6 stalks
4 Tb butter
3 sm garlic cloves, germ removed, finely chopped
1/2 C plain dry bread crumbs
Lemon zest from 1 lemon, coarsely grated
2 Tb minced fresh parsley (or mint)

Steam broccoli until just tender.

Remove and pat dry.  Season with salt/pepper and set aside.

Large skillet (pref. non-stick) over medium-low, add butter.  Once melted, add garlic and cook about 2 minutes.

Add bread crumbs, season with salt/pepper and toss until well blended, moistened with butter, and toasted, about 2 minutes.  Stir in zest and parsley.

Add broccoli and turn to coat with crumbs.  Transfer to platter or serve, spooning over any remaining crumbs.
