If you do any reading through the recipes here, you will notice I use olive oil more than anything else in cooking. I just love the flavour it gives pretty much everything. However, the second runner up is butter! Sometimes I like to use butter because it is equally as delicious and gives food a great flavour. That being the case with this very simple broccoli and carrot dish. Butter makes it better! Today it was a side dish to roasted chicken and it went very well together.
Butter Sautéed Broccoli and Carrots
1 Head of broccoli, cut into small florets
5 Medium sized carrots, peeled, cut in half and then quartered
3 Tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 Cup/60 ml water
Blanche the broccoli and set aside.
Melt the butter in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Toss in the vegetables and coat completely with the butter. Continue to toss the vegetables until they are all coated well and continue to cook for a further few minutes. Add the water, reduce heat to low and cover. Leave the vegetables to cook through and soften. This will take a further 8 minutes or so. Remove cover, give a quick stir and make sure all the liquid had evaporated. Season with salt & pepper and serve.
