Very Good 4.3/5
(13 ratings)

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable, but not everyone agrees with me. To convert people, I like to serve this simple recipe. Garlic sauteed in olive oil offers a sweet richness, and the lemon juice offers a nice tang.
If you are using fresh broccoli, peel the stalks and dice them before adding to the cooking water.
