Simply Elegant Steamed Lemon Broccoli


*1 lb. broccoli, cleaned and trimmed into stalks
*1 tbsp lemon juice
*1 tbsp olive oil
*1 tsp lemon zest, finely grated
*1/4 tsp salt
*1/4 tsp pepper


1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, trim the broccoli and place in a steamer basket over the boiling water.
2. Cover the broccoli and steam for 5 minutes until tender then drain well.
3. Whisk together the lemon juice, oil, zest, salt and pepper.
4. Pour the sauce over the broccoli and toss to coat well.


Simple, yet so elegant. Lemon and broccoli go together very very well. Using the lemon zest in addition to lemon juice is the trick. Sometimes the juice flavor disappears a little behind the strong broccoli flavor. You can't say that about the lemon zest - it holds up to anything.
