    Mama's Kitchen (Hope)'s Note:

    Fast fix up makes broccoli not the same old same old! My teens love this and will only eat broccoli like this or smothered in cheese- this is healthier! I created this recipe after the broccoli served at my fave Chinese place. The variety of ingredients apply to many regional cuisines such as Italian, Asian and SW.

      I made this recipe almost exactly as specified and it got rave reviews from 3 broccoli HATERS! I did used minced garlic from a jar rather than either powder or mincing my own. I chose to use the optional red pepper flakes and I highly recommend them. This had SO much flavor and actually made me *want* to eat the broccoli (I'd bought it to be healthy, I honestly think that plain broccoli tastes like lawn clippings). It was so good I made it again the very next night but with only 1 tbsp of olive oil and a bit more lemon juice. Result was the same...delicious. Overall I suggest only 1 tbsp of oil and adding the red pepper flakes.

      I think this has just the right amount of lemon to garlic and it is so easy. I used fresh broccoli and left out the red pepper flakes. I loved the ability to use fresh garlic and not get the raw garlic taste.

      Well this was fast and easy! I will use this recipe for those rushed dinner nights (with sports nights, that happens a lot!). I used the garlic powder. Thanks!
