I found this broccoli recipe when I decided to throw in another side at the last minute and we happened to have broccoli in the fridge. So it was pretty quick and easy to make and my husband and I loved it! It makes the broccoli kind of crunchy and with the Parmesan and bread crumbs it is sooo good! The website I got the recipe from is here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/good-eats/oven-roasted-broccoli-recipe/index.html. We’ve already made this twice and I just found the recipe a few days ago!
Prep: 10- 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
- 1 pound broccoli, rinsed and trimmed
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan or sharp Cheddar (I used Parmesan)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Cut the broccoli florets into bite size pieces. Cut the stalk into 1/8-inch thick, round slices. Place the broccoli into a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil, garlic, kosher salt and pepper and set aside.
Spread the panko into a 13 by 9-inch metal cake pan and place into the oven for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. (Be careful here, I forgot about the panko and left it in for about 5 minutes and had a burnt panko mess on my hands) Remove the panko from the oven and add to the bowl with the broccoli mixture. Toss to combine. Return the mixture to the cake pan, place in the oven and roast just until the broccoli is tender, 8 to 10 more minutes. Remove from the oven, toss in the cheese and serve immediately.
Yields: 4 servings
