Microwave Lemon Garlic Broccoli

Microwave Lemon Garlic Broccoli created by lazyme

Fast fix up makes broccoli not the same old same old! My teens love this and will only eat broccoli like this or smothered in cheese- this is healthier! I created this recipe after the broccoli served at my fave Chinese place. The variety of ingredients apply to many regional cuisines such as Italian, Asian and SW.

    I have been using your recipe constantly since I found it on March 29, 2009. It is one of the most versatile recipes in my huge collection and goes with so many entrees. I've served it as a hot side and cold as a salad that keeps well in the refrigerator. I've added a few drops of toasted sesame oil to flesh out Asian menus and sliced olives, pepperoncini, and a little oregano to go Italian. One can add meats and seafood, allowing them to marinate for several hours or overnight to meld the flavors. Thank you for rescuing so many menus for at least 12 years......and counting. I'm making it again, as I type.

    I have made this several times and I could eat the whole batch by myself. We lost our recipe file box in the flooding after Hurricane Harvey and this is one of the recipes that was a must find to replace!
