Braised Cucumbers

Vegetables are an important part of our diet. We all have our favorites and we tend to get habituated to them. We seem to always be preparing the same veggies with certain dishes. It can get monotonous over the years. So here's a new recipe that is absolutely delicious, especially with poultry and pork dishes. You will need...

1 large cucumber or 2 regular sized cucumbers
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried mint
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Peel cucumbers and slice into rounds, roughly 3/4 inch thick. Remove the center with the seeds and cut into quarters.

Melt butter over medium heat and add in your cucumbers. Cover and cook for five minutes.

Remove lid and add lemon juice, salt, and mint. Stir well with a large spoon.

Cover again and cook for an additional two to three minutes.

Serve warm.

This will liven up almost any meal.
