We loved this! We eat broccoli about 4 times a week (sometimes more), so it's nice to try it done a different way! I used about half a large head of broccoli but kept all the other ingredients the same (I love pine nuts). It turned out fabulous! Tip: I found pine nuts were inexpensive sold in a small bag where the chopped nuts are hanging in the grocery store.

Very tasty. Pine nuts being somewhat expensive, I'll probably use almonds when making larger batches. I'll run the pine nuts (when used) through a quick chop in the food processor to get them to "stick" more to the broccoli as opposed to chasing them around on the plate. All in all though both thumbs up on this one.

Sharon this ids a big hit in our house. DH likes his veggies rare or plain when steamed. I made your recipe and he rated it "excellent even though it has stuff in it" (nuts and gsarlic) Now I can make this or bpth of us as opposed to one of us. I steamed the brocolli as opposed to blanching, then tossed in with toasted almond and garlic/oil combo. This will ne a regular during our gsrden harvest. oh yummy! made for Auz/NZ swap 42

This was great! We loved the flavors in this simple dish (the texture... not so much; we'll do like MA HIKER next time, and blanch the broccoli for about 3 minutes, since we prefer our veggies much firmer). We absolutely love broccoli as well as garlic, so this was a great way to enjoy both AND to use up the pine nuts that have been taking up space in our cupboard. Thanks for sharing!

I made a vegan meal for one of my friends and I made this recipe. It's quite tasty, delicious, and so easy to make! I'm going to make it again tonight as a veggie side to my meal!

I absolutely love this! I usually just steam broccoli and it's boring. This is so nice! What flavor. I only blanched my broccoli for about 3-4 mintues - we like a lot of crunch. And I didn't have time to chop up the stems (plus I bought broccoli crowns at the store). And when I buy pine nuts, I toast the whole container and keep them in the freezer for ready use, so mine were already toasted. Very much yum on this recipe, will make again & again!! Thanks!
