Jill's version

What I do is pretty simple... I use my smallest pot. I put in about 1 ... tbs of butter... just enough so that when it is melted it covers the bottom of the pan. Then I crumble the almonds in. I swirl them around on medium low heat until they start to brown. (they can burn really fast so you have to watch them.) I usually then put the almonds on top of the broccoli and squeeze a half of a lemon all over it and mix it all together. I like it really lemon-y so you can use less if you don't.
