Very simple and good recipe. I love veggies so I'm always looking for a way to serve them without masking much of the natural flavor. This was great- just a hint of lemon and garlic. I love steaming green vegetables too because the color is so beautiful.

This was good. The lemon in it was very refreshing. I did melt 2 Tablespoons of butter instead of using olive oil, and I was probably a little heavy-handed on the garlic, but it was a nice change from regular broccoli. I served this with Home on the Range Buffalo Burgers With Brooklyn Ketchup. Thanks for posting.

Not a "wow" recipe for us, but it was okay...I felt like it needed something else - maybe some extra spices to zing it up! I will try it again sometime with more spices! Thanks for the recipe

Just a tad too lemony for us but okay. Next time I will reduce the amount of lemon.

MMMmmmmmm! This is delicious! I put 2 tsp. minced garlic in the mix instead of 1/2 tsp. Garlic and lemon on broccoli is awesome! Thanks for this recipe!

This was easy and delicious! I made it twice now. The first time I made it exactly as written, and the second time I subbed lime juice for the lemon juice, and frankly, I couldn't tell the difference. I steamed the broccoli in the microwave for 3 minutes.....it was fork-tender and still bright green. Perfectly cooked. Thanks for posting this healthy recipe, HeatherFeather.

What's not to love about this great brocooli side dish? We liked this so much that the 2 of us ate a whole pound by ourselves... I added a little kosher salt to the water to help season the broccoli a little... I only steamed mine for 4 minutes... we like ours on the crunchy side! After draining, I added a pat of butter just for a little bit of richness... not like it needed it, but it was very nice. Complemented Garlic & Lemon Roast Chicken Thighs very well, along with some mashed red potatoes. Thanks for sharing!!!
