Broccolini with Yogurt-Lemon-Butter Sauce

Broccoli's cute little cousin deserves a special sauce...


1 bunch broccolini
2 tbs butter (or 1 tbs butter and 1 tbs olive oil)
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp - 1 tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice (amount depends upon how tart you would like it - I used 1 tbs and it's nicely tart for my taste)
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbs plain yogurt


Begin by steaming the broccolini without chopping it.  While it is steaming, begin melting the butter in a small pan on medium.  Add the olive oil and garlic.  Let cook about 1 minute.

Then, remove from heat and stir-in the lemon juice, salt/pepper and yogurt.

Stick the broccolini with a fork to check for doneness.  When cooked to your satisfaction, use tongs to remove it on a plate(s) and drizzle with the sauce.  Enjoy!
