Broccoli With 3-Minute Lemon Sauce

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic members: Journal as 1 cup of vegetables without added fat

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

  • 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).
  • 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.
  • Drizzle sauce over broccoli and serve.
