Golden brown bread crumbs flavored with oregano and garlic perks up plain ol' steamed broccoli. Everything can be done ahead of time...ready for last minute cooking. Coffee filters come in handy to hold ingredients such as the breadcrumbs and spices needed in this dish
- 1 1⁄4 lbs broccoli
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic, minced
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs, preferably whole wheat
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 pinch ground pepper
- Steam the broccoli, until cooked (6 - 7 minutes).
- Bread Crumbs: Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add bread crumbs, oregano, salt and pepper and cook, stirring until the crumbs are toasted and golden brown, about 2 minutes.
- Put the broccoli in a dish, and sprinkle with the bread crumbs.
Very nice dish with lots of flavor. I used Italian bread crumbs that we enjoyed. I think next time, I'll wait and add the garlic when the bread crumbs have browned a little. It got a little bitter. Thanks for a new way to enjoy steamed broccoli. :) Made for the Photo Forum Side Dish special
