Wow, this is really good! I wondered about the lemon, but it really added a punch of fresh flavor. I really enjoyed it. Will definitely do this again! Thanks cooking_geek

I made this last night when my mother-in-law came over for dinner. It was the first time I've ever cooked for her so I was really glad she enjoyed it! The lemon really makes a difference. I found myself snacking while waiting for the rest of the dinner to cook. Thanks cooking_geek for sharing such a simple yet delicious recipe!

What a great way to cook broccoli! Even my broccoli hating b/f enjoyed this recipe. I loved the addition of fresh lemon juice. Thanks for sharing.

Very good way of making broccoli. Easy and yummy. Used spray butter and seasoned with salt/pepper and crushed red peppers. Very good!

My aunt gave me a similar recipe at Christmas and I won't prepare my broccoli any other way! I'll sometimes add a flavored butter to give it a little extra flavor, but this is an easy way to prepare one of my favorite veggies. And you are right, the lemon is what really adds to the flavor. :)

Excellent!! Made few changes, though. Since I was only using the flowrettes I only used about 1/2 pound for two people. I steamed it about 5 minutes and I adjusted the butter to 2tbsp and just used a quick 'squish' of bottled lemon juice. I can imagine fresh would be better, though. Thanks for the great recipe!

Hey Jude, this is one of our favorite ways to have broccoli. I usually add some Mrs. Dash for flavor, zest from the lemon, and cook in those wonderful microwave steam bags. Thanks for posting.

I really don't care for broccoli, but this recipe makes it great. I used spray butter and bottled juice.
