Broccoli with Garlic Butter Sauce

by Melissa on August 27, 2008

I love broccoli, but Nate does not really care for it. So when I really wanted to have broccoli with the Chicken Parmigiana Rolls I was making for dinner, I asked him if there was anything I could do to make it more appetizing to him. His answer “What about some sort of sauce….maybe a garlic butter sauce.” OK, I will give it a try. I was looking for a sauce that was not completely loaded with butter and cream when I found this one at Recipezaar. I did decrease the butter though and served it over steamed broccoli. I wouldn’t say that Nate loved this, but he did eat a good portion of it, so I would call that a success.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter Sauce

  • 2 heads of broccoli florets, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 pound butter (2 sticks), cold and cubed (I used 6 tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons parsley

Steam broccoli until crisp-tender, do not overcook!

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the garlic and broth. Bring to a boil and reduce by half. Whisk in the butter, 1 cube at a time, until all of the butter is incorporated and the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Add the parsley and mix well.
