  • Stir in the water, and bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover, and simmer until broccoli is bright green and tender (it should offer little resistance when pierced with the tip of a paring knife), about 4 minutes. (All the liquid should have evaporated; if not, remove lid and continue cooking until dry.) Stir in lemon juice and half the zest.

  • Transfer to a serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature, drizzled with oil and sprinkled with remaining lemon zest.
