  • 1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Spray a 20cm-square ovenproof dish with oil.

  • 2. Steam broccoli for 3-4 minutes or until just tender. Drain and transfer to prepared dish.

  • 3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Add oil and mix until well combined.

  • 4. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture evenly over broccoli. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Tips:

  • - Ensure the broccoli is well coated with the crumb mixture so it does not dry out during cooking.

  • - It will take about 3 slices of bread to make 1 ½ cups of breadcrumbs.

  • - You can use the broccoli stalk as well – just chop it into batons that are similar in size to the florets.
