Pretty good, pretty simple. Nice way to dress up broccoli. I used a rice steamer and it took closer to 10-12 minutes for the broccoli to be cooked. Pine nuts take about 2 minutes to cook, on high heat in a toaster oven, stirring after a minute. Watch them...they burn easily and quickly. That said, they really tie the dish together, so don't omit them.
Dijon, Thyme, and Pine Nut Broccoli
Tangy dijon mustard, fresh thyme, pine nuts and lemon transform boring broccoli in this recipe that will satisfy even picky eaters.
