    Superb! Very fresh and "zingy". It's important to use a good quality butter to get the best flavour. My daughters loved their broccoli today. Thanks Marie :)

    We really enjoyed this, even though I forgot to put in the lemon. I wanted something special for a camping trip, so I prepared my fresh broccoli into flowerettes and toasted the almonds before leaving home. I had intended to steam the broccoli on the campstove, drain, melt the butter and add the lemon juice and zest (I took a whole lemon), then sprinkle on the almonds. I just forgot the whole lemon part. Next time I will add the lemon and I'm sure it will be even better.

    Loved this! A quick fix to jazz up steamed broccoli. Fresh lemon juice and garlic are wonderful together. Almonds add a nice crunch. This should be served right away. Thanks, Marie!

    A nice, quick fix for steamed broccoli. Went very well with Sharon123's Seared Salmon with Balsamic Glaze recipe #118010 and CountyLady's Mushroom Risotto recipe #73187.
