Garlic and lemon goes well with this simple broccoli dish. Do not overcook the broccoli leave it crisp.


  1. Steam the broccoli for about 3-5 minutes or until the crispness that you prefer.
  2. Meanwhile heat oil in a fry pan and over moderate heat saute the garlic until golden.
  3. Stir in the lemon zest.
  4. Put broccoli in a bowl pour the garlic and zest over it and serve immediately.

I love the natural flavour and crispness of broccoli when you cook it just right, and this recipe brought it out wonderfully! Fantastic recipe, simple, lemony and something I just can't have enough of! I would probably add some more lemon juice to it too, because I like it real tangy. Thank you, Bergy!

A simple and delicious way to do broccoli. The garlic lemon sauce was a wonderful enhancement to the flavor of the fresh broccoli. Very yummy and healthy as well. I agree that the broccoli is better if it is crisp. Thanks!

I am not a broccoli fan, but this recipe made a liar out of me. This was sooooo... good. I didn't quite know what lemon zest was, so I used lemon pepper instead and VIOLA!!!!!!
