Broccoli (1 pound), cut into small pieces, stalks peeled and thinly sliced (6 cups)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 slice whole-wheat bread, ground in a food processor (1/2 cup)
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2 cup grated Parmesan (2 ounces)
Freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water until crisp-tender, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the bread crumbs and thyme. Toast until golden, then remove from heat. Add the Parmesan, broccoli, and a few grinds of pepper. Toss.
I have never really had broccoli as a side dish any way other than plain so this was a nice switch up. This would be a nice side dish to a dinner with friends along side baked chicken. I didn't change the recipe. It would have been better if the actual crumb topping stayed on the broccoli instead of having to fish for a piece of crumb and then some broccoli. It was still a very tasty dish!
