"I haven't made this actual recipe yet, but that's a lot of fat for a vegetable dish. Instead of steaming the broccoli first, I like to lightly saute the broccoli in just a bit of oil or even in an olive oil non-stick spray with a little garlic (cooking mellows the flavor of the garlic) and pepper or a little seasoned salt. A spritz of lemon on top would make a nice finish, but not overwhelm the broccoli. We also like adding a sprinkle of parmesan cheese."

"Definitely good... The lemon and garlic together are really strong though so it's definitely not for everyone."

"Lemon broccoli with garlic is a family favourite in our home and one we make when we have all the ingredients. It's a keeper, for sure, and going in my recipe box."
