Reviews for Lime-Buttered Broccoli
"I used a 12 oz bag of florets (which has 6 cups in it) and steamed them for 10 minutes in my Oster food steamer. I cut the butter down to 2 tbsp but kept the juice, salt, & pepper the same. Oh so delicious!~ Theresa"
"Very good. Loved the lime flavor."
"This simple recipe gave the broccoli such good flavor. I used bottled juice, and I'm sure fresh would be even better. Looking forward to making this again!"
"Gives a great flavor to just boring old broccoli! I like to use fresh limes, but if I don't have any on hand, then I will use lime juice from the bottle! Fresh ground pepper makes it really yummy also!"
