“I enjoyed a delicious broccoli dish in Mexico a few years ago and tried making it in my own kitchen. I think my Broccoli with Lemon Sauce tastes very much like what I had at the restaurant,” field editor Nancy Larkin writes from Maitland, Florida.


  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into spears
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest


  1. Place broccoli in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 5-7 minutes or until crisp-tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the sour cream, milk, lemon juice and zest. Microwave, uncovered, at 50% power for 1-1/2 minutes or until heated through, stirring every 30 seconds. Serve with broccoli.
