  • 1 head broccoli cut into florets and steamed

for the Sauce

  • 1 stick unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


cook the Brocccoli

  • Steam broccoli using my zero-minute steamed broccoli method.
  • Once the broccoli has completed steaming, rinse it under cool water for 5-10 seconds to prevent it from overcooking.
  • Add to a mixing bowl.

make the Lemon Butter Sauce

  • Add melted butter, lemon juice, garlic powder and salt to a blender and blend well. I use my NutriBullet for this.
  • Pour the lemon butter sauce over the broccoli and toss to fully cover all of the florets.
