Broccoli with 3-Minute Lemon Sauce

This lemon sauce has a lot of flavor so you only need a little drizzle to dress up your broccoli florets!


  • 6 cups raw broccoli florets, rinsed well
  • 2 tablespoons lemon curd, available in jars
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free half-and-half
  • freshly ground pepper to taste


Step 1
Add the broccoli and 1/4 cup water to a microwave vegetable steamer container and cook on HIGH until broccoli is just tender and still bright green (about 3 minutes depending on the microwave).
Step 2
Meanwhile, add lemon curd and fat-free half-and-half to a small, nonstick saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring often, until blended and hot. Add pepper to taste if desired.
Step 3
Drizzle over broccoli and serve!
