- 1 pound fresh broccoli, cut into spears
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- Place the broccoli in a saucepan with a small amount of water; cover and cook until crisp-tender. Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients. Drain broccoli and place in a serving dish; add lemon mixture and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"Yawn. Tastes exactly like broccoli with lemon and garlic. Plain broccoli is just as good."
