Introduction

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.

    I love broccoli, too - so it'll be nice to try it slightly differently!
    Like Frenchtosd, I feel the calories are a bit on the high side - but I think you have included the calories for the full amount of the olive oil, whereas that'd probably be at least partially drained for serving.
