Lemon Garlic Paleo Broccoli with Dairy-Free Butter Sauce

This might surprise you. Broccoli florets are actually not common in Asia. It’s less easier to find compared to cauliflower so I was quite surprised that they are used so widely outside of Asia when I first moved to the states. That being said, I love the crunch, the nutrition, and how convenient it is to add more vegetables to our meals so today I am sharing my favorite way to make Lemon Garlic Paleo Broccoli with dairy-free lemon garlic butter sauce.

Recipe Notes

If purchase a whole bunch of broccoli (stems with crowns) - Trim off the florets: Slice straight through the broccoli stem as close to the crown as you can get. The crown should break into several large florets. Cut through the "trunk" of each floret to make bite-sized pieces. Try to cut them into similar sizes so they will cook evenly.
