EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

To assure a bright green color, be sure to not overcook the broccoli. Overcooked broccoli takes on an olive color. If using almonds instead of bacon, toast them quickly in the microwave. Place almonds and 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in 1- quart microwavable casserole. Microwave uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until golden brown.

For a festive holiday garnish, sprinkle diced pimientos over the broccoli.
