Not a lot of people I know can say they love broccoli. Actually, quite a few people actually don’t like it. Until they have this broccoli. I have made several broccoli haters into lovers with this broccoli.
So what makes this broccoli so delicious? Well, it’s steamed until al dente, then sautéed in olive oil with some garlic. Sprinkled with a little breadcrumb and topped off with some Parmesan cheese. It’s got a slight crunch from the fried breadcrumb and crisp Parmesan cheese. The best part of this veggie dish is that it isn’t time consuming or difficult to make.
We eat this as a side dish regularly. Whether it’s with grilled steaks or a pasta dish, this broccoli is versatile. It can be made with fresh or frozen florets. It’s easy enough to eat mid week, but tasty enough to bring to a family gathering or a party. And I’ve done all of the above, and for broccoli, it’s always a hit.
So…My challenge for the day, whether you’re a broccoli-lover or not, give it a try, you might like it!
1 lb broccoli florets, steamed
¼ cup Italian breadcrumb
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 TBSP olive oil
½ tsp minced garlic
Heat up 1 TBSP of olive oil in a frying pan with the minced garlic. Add the steamed broccoli and sprinkle on the breadcrumb and Parmesan. Drizzle with the remaining olive oil so the breadcrumb soaks it up. Flip the broccoli so the breadcrumb side is down and cook it up until it gets crispy. Continue flipping until all sides are crispy. Once it’s all cooked and crisp, serve it up next to your favorite main dish. Enjoy!
