Brokolo me Latholemono: Broccoli with Latholemono (Oil and Lemon)

In Greek: μπρόκολο με λαδολέμονο, pronounced BROH-koh-loh meh lah-thoh- LEH-moh-no

There’s no secret to this recipe, but the addition of the oil and lemon sauce gives it a distinctively Greek touch. It’s easy to make and gets green vegetables on the table in a new way.
