    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!

      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!
