Reviews for Orange Broccoli
"Great different way to prepare broccoli"
"lacking in flavor"
"Sorry, but my family really didn't care for this recipe. We didn't think the orange flavor complemented the broccoli at all."
"This was very good. I used walnuts instead of almonds. I added 2 cloves of garlic."
"Very good! I thought it might a real orange taste, but it was more sweet. I added 1/4 tsp ea. of garlic powder and seasoning salt"
