I think I got this from World Wide Recipes, a recipe email zine I used to get. This sauce is really good on mashed potatoes, too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the broccoli into florets and slice the stalk.
  2. Steam or boil until tender but still firm and bright green.
  3. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat and saute the onion and garlic about 5 minutes until tender but not brown.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and stir over low heat.
  5. Spoon the sauce over the broccoli and serve immediately.

I liked the flavor of this although I would reduce the onion down to a few tablespoons. It was more of a topping than a sauce. The sauce would work well on a number of vegetables and don't limit yourself to just broccoli. Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Swap #19-2010.

I used a little less butter and non-fat sour cream and I ate a whole plate of it for dinner. Wonderful! My onions got a little brown after 3 min. (It could be because I cut the recipe in half or because my stovetop seems to cook at medium or higher) Anyway, my sacue came out a little bit of a golden color and the taste reminded me of onion dip- Next time I will be eating this on a baked potato, and everything else I can find! Thanks Mliss!

Absolutely excellent!! I saved this about a month ago and just got round to making it tonight to go with some stuffed chicken. It was so good and so simple I wished I had made this sooner. It will definitely become a favourite side dish in our house. Great post!!!!
