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.
We loved this. I did not change ingredients, only technique. Cooked the frozen broccoli in the microwave for six minutes; while it cooked I chopped the heated the evoo in a frying pan and added chopped garlic. When the microwave was done I added the broccoli to the oil and garlic with the red pepper flakes. I squeezed fresh lemon juice into the broccoli dish and tossed the hot sauteed mixture in it. The flavors were perfect together!
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!
This will become our newest fav broc recipe. Quick and tasty!!
Quick and easy... loved the garlic flavors. Made for My review tag; Dreamer in Ontario.
Delicious! Even my picky 13 year old ate it!
Excellent way to fix broccoli. I used fresh broccoli and cooked it in my steamer (rice cooker). I did not add any salt or red pepper flakes, but I did let the mixture sit while the broccoli was steaming. The garlic flavor really came through and made other seasoning unnecessary (for me). My kids weren't overly impressed, but my husband and I both enjoyed it very much!
Very nice way to liven up broccoli! I used frozen broccoli, fresh lemon juice and left out the pepper flakes. Next time I'll use fresh broccoli and include the pepper. Made for Best of 2010 Tag Game.
Great and Easy! I don't love broccoli. We are trying to eat healthier foods and I don't love to cook. So, this is perfect. It is flavorful and so easy to make. My husband liked it to. Thanks!
