Orange (Or Lemon) Broccoli

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by JillAZ

The orignal recipe for this came from "What's for Dinner?" I have been successful exchanging the orange juice and zest for lemon juice and zest. It is delicious either way.

Loved it! Simple and quick, can't beat that. I cooked the broccoli in the microwave, drained and added the remaining ingredients. It has a delightful orange flavor that gives a clean freshness to the broccoli.
