Garlicky Crumb-Coated Broccoli

Garlicky Crumb-Coated Broccoli

A simple, yet elegant way to serve broccoli.



Steam broccoli until tender, about 7-9 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Melt butter in heavy large skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and sauté until soft. Add breadcrumbs, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook until pale golden, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Stir in lemon zest.

Add broccoli to breadcrumbs and sauté until heated through, turning broccoli to coat, about 3 minutes*. Arrange broccoli on platter. Sprinkle any remaining breadcrumbs over and serve.


Recipe from Dorie Greenspan.

*I did not coat the broccoli in bread crumbs, but instead just used them as a topping.
