Lemon Walnut Broccoli

Fresh lemon juice plus the crunch of walnuts adds some spunk to cooked broccoli in this simple dish that’s super low in calories, carbs, fat and sodium.


fresh broccoli, rinsed and chopped (4 cups of florets) baby broccoli works very nicely too
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon raisins
ICB spray or olive oil using olive oil sprayer (if both n/a use a teaspoon of olive oil)
salt and pepper to taste


Cook the broccoli until almost done- by either boiling them in a pot of water, steaming in a pyrex dish in an half inch of water or even quicker, put them in a Glad® Simply Cooking™ Microwave Steaming Bag and heat on high for about 2-3 minutes. Spray a small to medium sized pan with ICB or an olive oil sprayer or drizzle very lightly with a teaspoon olive oil and put on medium heat. Add the broccoli and lemon juice and sauté 5-7 minutes until lightly browned. Sprinkle with raisins and walnuts, heat for another minute and then serve.
