    Cookgirl's Note:

    From a local source. I tested this recipe by substituting a variety of colors of cauliflower (purple, white, golden) for the broccoli. Other cruciferous vegetables such as broccolini, broccoflower, brussels sprouts, romanesco, etc. will work, too. Easy!

      Made for the Gourmet Goddesses on the 1st dy of ZWT-9, this recipe is delicious & has many of our favorite ingredients. Other than perhaps adding a tad more butter than suggested, I made it as written & loved that it felt like broccoli dressed w/Hollandaise --- BUT without all the excess fat content & calories of Hollandaise. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #50* Broccoli is our favorite veggie, and this was such a nice addition ! I even got to use my last Meyer lemon ! There was just enough ZING to truly bring out the flavors -- and steaming does keep the broccoli fresh and very green. This is a keeper -- thanks Cookgirl.
