My family loves vegetables and it’s nice to try new ways with old favorites like broccoli.  It’s easy to get a real depth of flavor by just adding a few extra ingredients to a plain side of broccoli.

Easy Lemon Garlic Broccoli Recipe

The recipe could not be easier to make. Just saute everything and add some cheese in the last few minutes and add to any meal.

The lemon juice and lemon zest adds a nice tangy flavor and Jarlsberg cheese is the perfect full flavored cheese to add.  

The flavor of this cheese is very rich so a little goes a long way and helps to keep the calories down.
