  • Cooking Time: 15 to 17 minutes


1/4 cup hazelnuts, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. broccoli, separated into 25 to 30 trimmed spears
1/3 cup low-fat, reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest
2 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Toast the hazelnuts in a small skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes until lightly browned.
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli spears, and let the broccoli cook 3 to 4 minutes on one side until browned. Turn the spears with tongs, and brown the other side for about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the chicken broth, cover, and steam for about 5 minutes, until the broccoli is tender.
  3. Combine the lemon zest, parsley, garlic, and, if desired, salt and freshly ground pepper, and sprinkle the mixture over the cooked broccoli. Top with the toasted hazelnuts.
