VEGETABLE

3 - 4 bunch
broccoli (cleaned and cut to have stem pieces and florets)
water to cover

1 Tbsp
butter
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash broccoli, cut off the thick stems, cut them up small pieces and put in the bottom of a large sauce pan. Add enough water to the pan to cover the cut up stem pieces. Bring to a boil.

Cut the florets apart. Add to the pan. Do not cover with water!
