Vegetable Deliciousness

i am not the type that needs to be forced to eat my vegetables, although i am sure there are plenty of you out there & you need this.

Glazed Broccoli w/ Almonds...delish.

2 pounds fresh broccoli
1/2 tsp salt
1 chicken bouillon cube
3/4 C hot water
1/4 C flour
1 C light cream {i've used both half and half and heavy whipping cream with no problem}
2 TB lemon juice
salt & pepper
1/4 C grated parmesan cheese
1/4 slivered blanched almonds {i've skipped the blanching step too}

wash, separate & trip broccoli {i leave mine pretty big}.
add salt & broccoli to boiling water. cook about 2 minutes, barley tender.
drain & arrange in baking dish {9x13 pan}
dissolve bouillon cube in 3/4 C hot water.
in saucepan melt butter, slowly blend in flour.
gradually stir in cream & dissolved bouillon into flour mixture.
cook over medium heat until thick & smooth. remove from heat.
stir in lemon juice & salt & pepper.
pour sauce over broccoli, sprinkle with parmesan cheese & almonds.

bake at 375 for 20 minutes.

snap, that looks good! I'm going to pretend that the cream and cheese does not take away from the nutritional value of the broccoli and almonds! feel free to make this for me anytime.
