Lemon-Garlic Broccoli

Lemon-Garlic Broccoli

My kids seem to eat more veggies when they have lemon or vinegar on them, my husband does too. I decided to quickly steam some broccoli until it was crisp-tender then sautéed it with crushed red pepper flakes, minced garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice. It was tangy and garlicky with a bit of a kick and we all loved it.

    I need to make more broccoli recipes, I only eat it raw in my infamous broccoli salad.
    I know a lot of people don’t eat it raw but I just want all the nutrients I can get from it.
    How was vacation? Or maybe I should go read the “I’m back from vacation post?” LOL
