"I adopted this recipe when another chef left the site. The text from my original review stated, "I just made this for my lunch. Yum! I had a smaller portion of broccoli, and therefore downsized the recipe. The flavors are awesome together. I used all fresh ingredients (no bottled lemon juice here!). Since I was cooking only for myself, I prepared the lemon garlic butter in a small saute pan and then tossed the broccoli in that pan to coat it. (No need to dirty a serving dish for just me!) I can't wait to prepare this for others. The lemon garlic butter lends this to be a great side for fish...I am thinking grilled salmon would be great." I have since prepared this as a side dish for a multitude of meals. I love the broccoli, lemon, garlic combo."

"I made this for a family gathering a few nights ago and everyone loved it!! I have to say that it was fantastic even before I added the lemon sauce and to be perfectly honest next time I make it ill toss the broccoli with the oil and then sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic like i did before and then bake and eat it, it was fantastic just doing that.. although it was also amazing with the lemon sauce on it paired with the shrinp scampi we were also having, I would only be omiting the lemon butter sauce to save the calories.."
"This broccoli is so delicious, great way to fix it and easy also. The roasting gives it such a nice flavor. I also used pecans in stead of pine nuts as I found out I was out of them. Thanks for posting the recipe."
"Delicious! I made this for our Christmas dinner and it was divine... The essence of simplicity and very flavorful. Roasting is such a great method for vegetables. "
"Although I prefer most vegetables roasted, I won't add broccoli to that list. However, I did enjoy the flavourings and will use it on steamed broccoli next time. Thanx Mean Chef!"
"Great side dish. We love broccoli roasted, it is so much better than steamed. And lemon is broccoli's perfect match. I used a lot less butter and more of the nuts. We love our veggies, so this feeds two to three for us."
"I was very happy to come across this recipe since I was really getting tired of my standard broccoli preparation. The flavors and textures in this dish work so well together. I'm not sure I can ever go back to plain, blanched broccoli again. Thanks for sharing this! I featured it on my blog as well - http://danasfoodblog.com/?p=1626."
"Great broccoli!! I made as directed and it came out perfect. I like the flavor of lemon and broccoli, but not a ton of lemon flavoring. Will definitely be making this again! Made for Name that Ingredient Tag."
"Good but lemon is not that great on broccoli for us. | used frozen organic broccoli florets, light tasting extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, no butter to be dairy free just additional olive oil, organic garlic clove, good quality (fresh tasting) walnuts I toasted in a dry frying pan instead of pine nuts as that is what I had on hand (loved them), plus the rest of the ingredients, although possibly no pepper as I may not have had it when I made this recipe and the problem with this site is my reviews were not showing so I didn't write this immediately afterwards. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Game 2013."
"Made and ate it without the lemon butter sauce...just roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper. What a great snack, side dish! Loved both by kids and adults alike!"
"Excellent - the family loved this, teens included :)"
"So delicious! I highly recommend this."
"Very quick and easy - and tasty. Roasted broccoli was such a great change of pace from the usual. I didn't add any nuts at the end, just out of personal preference. Thank you!"
"I liked the texture of the broccoli very much as same of the combination with pinenuts.
I did not know that was possible to prepare broccoli directly in the oven and I tried out roast the pinenuts together at the same time. Come out perfect and I would do it again!
Thanks a lot for this yummy recipe and teachint!"
"Made this last week and I thought it was the best broccoli ever! I served this over a bed of rigatoni. I MUCH prefer it without the lemon garlic sauce (no pine nuts, allergy). I served the sauce on the side as I have picky eaters in the house. My husband had no idea that sauce was for the broccoli and instead used it over his pork chops. He said it was to die for, and told me to make it for pork chops from now on. LOL. Bought a bunch of broccoli and will be making it again tonight for the family. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"This a a great broccoli recipe. The lemon gives it a lovely flavor. I will be making this again."
"Lovely way to make broccoli. I tasted it before adding the lemon juice and I liked it better without."
"We really enjoyed this recipe. Loved how easy it was to make. A KEEPER FOR SURE!!"
"Fantastic recipe, an interesting and flavorful way to cook broccoli! I didn't have the pine nuts so I left those out, and used bottled lemon juice instead of fresh, but it still turned out delicious. I will be making this again."
"This was very tasty. I used almonds instead of pine nuts and it turned out great. Thank you!"
