Delicious! I am always looking for ways to dress up broccoli and this is a great way to do so. And I like that is has all this flavor without a buttery "sauce". I doubled the amount of ginger, based on Paula's review. Made for Holiday Sides game at

I made this recipe with brocli-flower and frozen broccoli and it was terrific. My 4 year old daughter ate it and I even finished off the liquid left over in the pan. YUM! Lemon, ginger, onions and salt. What simple ingredients and yet so flavorful together! Easy to make too.
