I really enjoyed this sauce. It was easy and quick to fix. The lemon juice gave it a nice taste. I didn't have a double boiler so I just put a small pan into a bigger pan with a couple inches of water. Thanks!

Thanks for this quick easy recipe. I too cheated a little and heated my sauce in the microwave. Turned out fine. Love the lemon flavour. Cheers, Jenny

A day and a half after eating it, my husband just said to me, "That broccoli we had the other night? That sauce was really good!". So I figured I'd better post something! Very simple and easy, not too fatty, and the lemon is just enough, not overwhelming lemony. Nicely balanced recipe, we'll be having this again, but probably made with Mexican crema, as I seldom have sour cream on hand. Like Jen T, I heated mine in the microwave, right in the Pyrex measuring cup I mixed it in.
