Nana’s Lemon Broccoli Recipe

Nana always made two broccoli dishes: one was just plain steamed broccoli and the other was her lemon broccoli that she always ate. I make it a little easier – in the microwave – and also prefer mind a little less cooked (with some bite to it, kind of al dente). I didn’t eat it much as a kid but this past Thanksgiving I made it and have been craving it almost daily since. You’ll notice that this is a VERY precise recipe! Basically, make it to taste, but don’t leave a single ingredient out!

Nana’s Lemon Broccoli

broccoli florets
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
lemon juice

Trim the florets and put them in a microwave safe bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil. Shake on some oregano. Squeeze over some lemon juice. Microwave until desired doneness (I usually do about 4 minutes). Eat and reminisce about my Nana (optional but recommended).
