This recipe has potential, but it wasn't quite what I was looking for. There just seemed to be something missing (and I am not good enough in the kitchen to know what it is yet.) One word of war...

awesome. My daughter couldn't get enough.

I will use my steamer next time to get the broccoli consistency crisp-tender. Aside from that, it was an easy way to make broccoli tasty. My 4 y old said it was "yummy, so I ate it all up."
