I love my veggies, including our cruciferous friends broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts but the following super simple sauce makes these veggies taste even better. If you aren’t much of a broccoli fan, try it out just once because this sauce improves the taste of cruciferous veggies SO much, you may find yourself liking a whole class of veggies previously ignored. And what is this magical ingredient, you ask? Well, butter, of course! This sauce goes well with veggies that have strong flavors not more delicate flavored veggies like asparagus.

Put butter in a small heatproof dish, cover with wax paper and microwave till just melted. Mix in mustard stirring with a small whisk or a fork to form an emulsion. Spoon over hot steamed veggies. Leftovers can be stored in the fridge and reheated.
