Lemon broccoli with Garlic recipe

I grew up eating this. My Mom use to make it. I didn't have hot broccoli till I was around 30. My Mom didn't have a recipe, she just threw a little lemon & a little oil, so she could never give me the recipe. Now she's gotten lazy & just puts Italian salad dressing on it. I just got this recipe from the Taste of Home magazine (that I got from the library). I was so excited to make it & it tastes just like hers.

I absolutely love that magazine! Not always the healthiest options, but they sure taste good. Now this one actually looks to be both healthy and delicious!
