We tried this recipe but I'm not sure how to rate it so I'll reserve that for now. I didn't use exact ingredients & I wasn't feeling great the day I made it so the heat didn't agree with me. Next time though I think I'll substitute essence spice for part of the pepper flakes (& cut those abit too), alittle spicy for us. Found the white wine abit excessive so I'll try cutting that next time also. For a change I didn't find I needed to increase the garlic but tried to cut back on the oil abit. To make it abit easier that day I used lemon pepper for the zests. We make broccoli alot so I can see trying this one again, thanks for sharing.
Delicious broccoli. I The only thing I did different was use Lemon Zest Grapeseed Oil instead of olive oil. Even my son liked this and that is a big compliment!!!
