Super-Charged Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Yield 4

Adapted from Fresh Choices and Jennifer Motl



  1. Steam your broccoli to desired doneness; drain.
  2. While broccoli is steaming, squeeze the juice from the half lemon into a large bowl. Add and whisk in oil gradually until thoroughly blended. Whisk in garlic, salt, pepper, and pepper flakes.
  3. Add the hot broccoli and toss until coated in dressing (or simply pour dressing over broccoli and stir a bit).
  4. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice. As shown in the photo, I’ve added dried cranberries, hemp seeds, and sautéed, sliced Baby Bella mushrooms.


If you use a microwave, microwaving your lemon on high for about 30 seconds will yield more juice when you squeeze the lemon. Rolling on the counter a bit beforehand also works.
