Yield

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

1 large onion
3/4 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1-1/4 pounds broccoli
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
Dash paprika

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut onion into quarters, then crosswise into thin slices. Bring onion and chicken broth to a boil in medium saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, 5 minutes or until onion is fork-tender. Remove onion to small bowl with slotted spoon, leaving broth in saucepan. Set aside.
  2. Trim broccoli, removing tough part of stems. Cut into florets with 1/2-inch stems. Peel remaining broccoli stems; cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  3. Spread half of broccoli in 8-inch square baking dish or 2-quart casserole. Spread half of onion slices on broccoli. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Repeat layers.
  4. Pour reserved broth over vegetables. Cover tightly with foil. Bake 25 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Do not stir. Drain liquid; sprinkle with paprika before serving.
