"Got this from a show on the A.B.C. As we are family of Broccoli lovers, I tried this for something different, and the family enjoyed it so much. Easy and so quick and a great side dish to any meal."
Serving Size: 1 (201 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Made this for dinner tonight thinking it would be a family favorite, but instead I had some family members say that they would have loved the dish without butter, and others saying they loved the butter but not the lemon juice. I plan on making it again however; but with a little less butter and lemon juice to see what they think. Made and reviewed for the 46th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap."
"WOW great side dish! I had this ready so quickly and the flavour was delicious! I reduced the butter but I think it didn't take away from the recipe. Served the broccoli with Recipe #9060 - Thank you Tisme for a great recipe."
"We are also broccoli lovers and this was fast and dressed up to go with a broiled fish. PERFECT! I used more like half and half olive oil/butter, and probably some extra almonds (US translated to about 2 ounces, so I just guessed :) I'll be doing this one often! DH AND DD ate it all! I was hoping for some for lunch!"
"Delicious and verging on decadent with all that butter. I had a smallish head of broccoli, so skipped the oil, used the juice of half a lemon, and reduced the butter and almonds to 40 and 20 grams, respectively. To be honest, I was short of almonds. The balance of flavours was perfect and everyone loved it. Served with a mild lamb curry. Thanks for posting."
"We loved the lemon in this. The nuts make a nice addition too. I used just a teaspoon of butter, since that is more in line with our preferences. The flavors marry well."
"A classic that has been kicked up a notch with the addition of lemon. Made as written and will make again. Thanks for the post."
"Let me start by saying that I cook broccoli for our dinner veggie about 4-5 nights a week. My husband will eat little else veggie wise. So, a different way to have broccoli is a huge welcome. We all loved this recipe! The sliced almonds were such a treat, mixed in with the butter, olive oil and lemon flavors. Super simple to prepare and gives us a change of pace. Thank you so much! ~Made for Oct. Aussie/NZ Swap~"
"As good a broccoli dish as I know. I enjoyed it hugely. I used slivered rather than sliced almonds, since that is what I had on hand. The combination of flavors is just lovely. I am SO glad I tried this recipe!!"
"This is such an easy way to give broccoli yet another flavor boost. We enjoyed it very much. I apologize for using regujlar almonds but it was all that I had on hand - They tasted great. Thanks for posting a brocolli Keeper Tisme"
"This is a fabulous recipe and all of us enjoyed it. Simple to make to. I cooked my broccoli in the microwave before adding to the butter mixture. Loved the hint of lemon. Thanks for posting."
