Altered ingredient amounts.
I made this to accompany steaks. Like others suggested, I toasted the almonds and used less lemon (no zest but I squeezed half a lemon). The end result was phenomenal. The almonds gave the broccoli a woodsy flavour and a nice crunch. Thank you! - 24 Jul 2008
I loved this! I used the juice and zest from half a lemon and that was perfect. I also did toast the almonds just a bit. So delicious.. the almonds added texture and the sauce added flavour without overpowering the broccoli. I will be making this again and I think it would work with asparagus or green beans. - 17 Jan 2015
