    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.

    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.
