    Bev's Note:

    This colorful steamed broccoli side dish is loaded with vitamin C! If you don't have a steamer basket, improvise with a metal colander to prepare this healthy vegetable dish. I have played with this recipe to suit my tastes, but originally found it in BH&G.

      Bev, this is such a colorful and delicious side dish! I could make a meal of it. I used butter, since I don't care for margarine. I used red pepper (my favorite), and since I had cauliflower and broccoli to use up, I had a medley. Simply wonderful and loaded with good nutrients! Thanks for this recipe. : )

      This was very easy to prepare, had lots of colors and the flavors mixed together very well. I didn't use margerine, though. I used good ol' fashioned butter and it worked fine. I like the fact that there was no salt in the recipe. This will be something that I will make time and time again. Thanks for the recipe, Bev!

      I really enjoyed this broccoli and peppers recipe... the husband and the kids liked it, but not as well as I did. It was easy to make and presents beautifully on the table. I used real butter (unsalted).
