Delicious! I steamed fresh broccoli florets until crisp tender along with the onion which took about 6 minutes from start to finish. Tossed it in the herbed butter using thyme and marjoram only. Used salt and pepper at the table.

I made this for dinner last night and I must say, it is quite delicious! The only thing I changed was to add more butter and more lemon juice (I used double the amount of each) and I did not use marjoram because I didn't have any on hand. This recipe is so easy to make and it really boosts the flavor of the broccoli. A keeper for sure!

I admit that I had adjusted this recipe! I hadn't the broccoli spears, so I'd used 2 cups of broccoli florets (frozen), 1-1/2 tsp. lemon juice, 1/4 of a finely chopped onion, 1/4 tsp. salt. I'd used a seasoned herb blend since I hadn't the savory or marjoram on hand. The butter was kept the same. I used my microwave oven to cook the vegetables with 2 Tbsp. water for 2 minutes, then 3 more minutes.I melted the butter and added the onion, lemon juice, herb seasoning and salt. I drained vegetables and added the herb butter; stirred together. This is a tasty side dish! Thank you for sharing! delowenstein
