Giving Elegance to a Veggie -- Lemon Butter Breadcrumbs

Here's a quick way to make microwaved green beans, asparagus, or broccoli luxurious. For two to three servings:
  1. While the veggies are cooking, melt a tablespoon of butter in a small skillet.
  2. Add 1/4 cup of bread crumbs and gently sauté until lightly browned.
  3. Add the juice of half a lemon. Optionally, add half the zest as well.
  4. Heat through but do not allow to burn.
  5. Toss the vegetable with the bread crumbs and serve.

Imprecise & Inexpensive

Two themes predominate in my approach to cooking. 1. Daily cooking of flavorful food need not be a precise art. 2. You can be an adventurous cook on a budget. Cooking and eating should be fun for both cookers and eaters.
