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!!!!!!

Wonderful...I had this with seasoned yogurt (I am gonna post the recipe soon) and it tasted too good. It is something you can keep repeating every week. Thanks for sharing the same.

This was a nice alternative to salt. I will have steamed broccoli more often . . . thanks for the recipe.

Well, I basically never steam or boil broccoli anymore, because roasting it is sooooo much better :-) But I wanted to make this recipe, so adapted it to roasting. It is stupendous. What I did was peel and trim the broccoli (two full stems, not just florets) and slice into reasonable pieces. I then sliced a couple of garlic cloves and put the broccoli and garlic on a half-sheet pan, then drizzled a couple of tablespoons of olive oil over. Tossed it all and roasted at 400 degrees F for 25 minutes...turning and tossing after 15 minutes. After 25 minutes, I took it out of the oven, sprinkled with freshly cut lemon zest and seasoned with sea salt and a bit of pepper. Tossed again and served. Simply wonderful.

I love this recipe. I add the broccoli right into the pan until well coated. I toss the broccoli mixture with whole wheat linguini or angel hair pasta. Topped off with grilled chicken and parmesan cheese. Light and delicious.

Quick easy and delicious. I used garlic scapes instead of cloves and it worked really well.

We had this tasty side dish a few nights ago... I have a really bad habit of not measuring stuff, so I think I used 2 stalks of broccoli cut up ( stems included... we love them) and instead of messing with another pan, I used some garlic that I had infused into some olive oil for another dish and just grated some fresh lemon zest over the top, along with some juice, right before serving. Delicious! Thanks for a refreshing and light side!!!
