Roasted Broccoli With Parmesan

          Broccoli has become a family favorite, even after coming to India, I buy it at least once a week. Though we can do some Indian recipes with it, personally I like it in the form of a stir fry or simply blanched with some dip. The vegetable should not be overcooked, should retain a slight crunchiness. This dish is again very simple to make, tastes really good and will definitely be loved by kids, can serve it as an healthy appetizer or snack..

Need To Have

  • Broccoli - 1 medium size
  • Garlic - 5 cloves, chopped
  • Pepper Powder - to taste
  • Lemon Zest - from a lemon
  • Lemon Juice - 1/2 teaspoon or to taste
  • Kraft Parmesan Cheese Powder - 1 tablespoon or to your taste
  • Salt - to taste


          Wash and blanch the broccoli florets. Heat some olive oil, add the florets and salt, stir fry for about 5 to 7 minutes, till it starts turning golden brown, or looks roasted. At this stage, add the lemon zest, lemon juice, pepper, toss it, serve it hot topped with the Parmesan cheese.

This tastes best when served hot. Saute and keep the broccoli, just before serving, warm it in the oven or on stove top, add the remaining ingredients and serve.
You can do the roasting process in the oven.
Add salt wisely, since you are adding cheese at the end, and also it's upto your taste, how much pepper, lemon juice and cheese you add.
