Garlicky Lemon Broccoli
From the kitchen of PSO violinist Hanfang Zhang
"This is my favorite way to prepare and eat fresh broccoli. Simple, delicious, and good for you - this side dish goes with a variety of main entrées." –Hanfang
- 2 heads broccoli, cut into florets (about 5 cups)
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Put the broccoli in a steamer basket set over a pan of simmering water. Cover and steam until crisp-tender, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, squeeze the juice from the lemon into a large bowl. Whisk in the oil until thoroughly blended. Whisk in the garlic, salt, and pepper.
Add the hot broccoli and toss to coat with the dressing. Enjoy!
