- 1Trim leaves and tough ends from broccoli stalks. Cut broccoli into flowerets by removing each head to include a small piece of stem. Cut off the stem and peel it with a vegetable peeler, then cut crosswise into 1/8-inch pieces to make "buttons.".
- 2To steam broccoli, rinse flowerets and "buttons." Place steamer basket in large saucepan; add 1 inch of water. (Water should not touch bottom of basket.) Place "buttons" in steamer; top with flowerets and cover. Bring to a boil over high heat; steam 5-7 minutes until bright green and crisp-tender.
- 3Meanwhile, combine lemon juice and cornstarch in small saucepan. Stir in chicken broth and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and begins to boil, stirring constantly.
- 4Arrange "buttons" around edge of warm serving plate. Place flowerets in center. Drizzle with lemon juice sauce; season with pepper. Garnish with orange slices, if desired. Serve immediately.
