From TOH. Broccoli is one of the few veggies that DH will eat, so I'm always looking for new ways to fix it so I don't get bored!

  1. In a small skillet, saute pecans in butter until golden brown. Set aside.
  2. Place broccoli in a large saucepan. Add 1 inch of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until crisp-tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, broth and lemon juice until smooth. Cook and stir over medium heat for 1 minute or until thickened.
  4. Remove from heat; stir in lemon peel and pepper. Drain broccoli and place in a serving bowl. Top with sauce and pecans.

This was a nice way to serve broccoli, although a bit sweeter than I would prefer for a lemon sauce. I will make again, but will reduce the sugar by 1/2 next time. Thanks for posting!

Thanks so much for a great new way to dress up a broccoli side! The addition of the pecan & lemon flavors is wonderful! A great keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Healthy Choices ABC cooking game]
