"I changed the original recipe for this side dish to use hop pepper sauce instead of red pepper flakes," notes Bryan Forster of Clayton, Ontario. "The zesty seasonings really punch up the flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2012

When using frozen broccoli I would suggest following the package directions for time and amount of water. It really was a tasty change from our usual steamed broccoli with butter!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 13, 2011

Really good! I used 2 large garlic cloves and it had strong garlic flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2011

My family enjoys this refreshing tangy sauce. It's super simple to make. I've never used the pepper sauce, we enjoy the milder flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 30, 2010

I wasn't crazy about this recipe and we love broccolli. Plain, steamed broccoli is the best tasting way to serve it at least for us. I'm glad I tried it but I'm deleting it from my recipe box.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 21, 2010

My family loved this recipe. I have had a hard time getting my 4 year old to eat broccoli and he devoured it and has been asking for it every dinner since. I steam it instead of microwaving so it preserves the nutritional value. Thank you so much for this recipe!
