  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound broccoli, cut into florets and stalks peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen peas, thawed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves


In a large sauté pan with a lid, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add garlic and broccoli and cook for 1 minute. Pour in water, cover with a lid, and cook broccoli until it is bright green and just becoming tender, 4 to 5 minutes.

Add peas, salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is fork tender and peas are warm, 3 to 5 additional minutes. Toss gently with remaining butter, lemon zest, juice and fresh mint. Serve immediately.
