Dine In: Balsamic Broccoli Amandine

Amandine is French for “with almonds” and balsamic vinegar is a great way to add a sweet/tart flavor.

Put them together and you have Balsamic Broccoli Amandine—an elegant and easy side dish for those evenings when you want to add a bit of flair to dinner.

Balsamic Broccoli Amandine
Serves 6
Prep time: 5 minutes; Cook time: 8 minutes

2 cups (about a pound) broccoli florets *
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup butter
2 shallots, finely chopped*
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 Tbs brown sugar
1/2  tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup sliced onions
•Broccoli florets are the flower portion of fresh broccoli.
•Shallots are very mild onions. Use 1/4 cup chopped onion if you can’t find shallots.

In a large microwaveable bowl, combine broccoli and water. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and microwave until broccoli is tender, about 3 minutes. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, add the shallots and cook until tender, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add vinegar
