3 to 3 1/2 cups broccoli florets
1 small yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 small red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
2/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Cook the broccoli and bell pepper strips in a medium saucepan in a small amount of lightly salted boiling water for about 8 minutes until crisp tender; drain. Place lid on pan and keep warm.
To make the sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion and garlic in the butter until the onion is tender; stir in the cornstarch. Stir in the orange juice and the mustard; cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly. Simmer a couple more minutes. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and peppers; toss to coat.
