    Everyone knows how to make broccoli, it seems silly to even think about it having a particular process. You have your heads of broccoli that you trim to florets and wash up really nice.

    Then you choose how you want to cook it. You can steam it, roast, or bake them like in this recipe.

    There are so many different types of broccoli recipes out there but this is my favorite. It has so much flavor, I could eat it with everything! I’m sure your family will love it too!

    Tools for making crispy broccoli:

    Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!

    Good Extra Virgin Olive Oil– A good olive oil will taste like, well, olives, while a poorly made one will taste like vegetable oil. Gross. While people tend to favor Italian and Greek olive oils, I prefer to buy mine domestically.

    There are some great ones out there from all over the world, but the reporting of ingredients isn’t always the same and you could find that your super expensive olive oil was actually cut with vegetable oil.

    Rimmed Baking Sheet– another kitchen staple! You’ll use this for prep work, roasting and much more. I have 7 at my house.

    Servings: 4
    Calories: 349 kcal
    Ingredients
    • 2 heads broccoli trimmed to florets
    • 10 slices thin pepperoni you can use turkey or regular
    • 1 garlic cloves thinly sliced
    • 1 1/2 cups panko
    • Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper
    • 4 tablespoons light extra virgin olive oil divided
    • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    2. Lay broccoli in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing in 2 tablespoons light virgin olive oil. Place in oven for 10 minutes, ends should start to char, but broccoli will hold its shape.
    3. In a small food processor combine pepperoni and garlic. Pulse until the mixture has made small bits. Add panko and a light seasoning of fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper before pulsing a few more times to combine and all pieces are relatively similar size.
    4. Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons light extra virgin olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-low heat. When oil is hot add panko mixture. Stir for about 5 minutes or until mixture is crisp and olive oil as been absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside.
    5. In a large mixing bowl, smear Dijon mustard around the sides. This prevents it from clumping to one piece when you toss it. Add broccoli, tossing to lightly coat in mustard, then toss in panko mixture and return to rimmed baking sheet.
    6. Bake for an additional 5 minutes, remove and serve.
