We both loved the flavor of this recipe...that makes this deserving of the 5 stars...I cooked it for 4 minutes because I like a bit of a bite to my broccoli...I thought it was over cooked...the hubby who doesn't care for broccoli loved it because it was nice and soft...which I never make...made this for "The Joy of Vegetables" tags game...served it with a grille chile pork chops and campfire potatoes...yum...

I was so excited to see the citrus flavored olive oil in this recipe! Looked forward to using my gift from my daughter, and this did not disappoint. The lemon zest put it over the top. So quick and easy to make too! This will be a repeat recipe at my house.....we eat a lot of broccoli.
