FFwD - Garlicky crumb-coated broccoli



When I saw this week's French Friday with Dorie recipe - Garlicky crumb-coated broccoli - I can't say that I was enthused.  Broccoli with garlic and breadcrumbs - so what, I thought.
Man, I under-estimated  this dish.  It is simple, but it is good!  You saute steamed broccoli with breadcrumbs and garlic, and it tastes AMAZING!

Oh, rats, I was hoping you would not like this as I am waffling on making it...I keep thinking it is a horrible thing to do with my favorite of favorites, steamed broccoli. Really? Really? Well, okay...maybe. Maybe. If you say so.

This is a good way to 'lighten up' a broccoli dish.

This broccoli looks amazing! Loving the crunchy topping :)

Glad you enjoyed. I must say, it was not simple to come up with a lot to say about broccoli :-) This one was definitely more a test of my mental prowess than of my cooking abilities.

I made this last night and it was awesome! Yours looks delicious!

Ok, this is definitely going to be part of dinner tomorrow. My whiny boy might actually put a bite in his mouth and not whine or complain. Maybe.

And here I am an unabashed broccoli lover too! :D

I can well believe this is an excellent dish - I have a similar recipe I love - but it also has melting brie in it - makes broccoli decdadent

I must admit that I underestimated this dish as well. I was expecting another green bean and pancetta disappointment. But, I was so wrong! Glad you enjoyed them!

This recipe is a keeper! I can't wait to try the breadcrumbs with other veggies.

Mary said...

I totally agree. Let's here it for broccoli- the unsung hero of the veggie world.

Yes, this recipe exceeded my expectations...takes simple broccoli, which I love all by itself, to a higher level.

This was really good! I gotta try using breadcrumbs next time. I cant have bread now so I made my own nut crumbs :)

I am with you - didn't think this would be bad at all, just not that amazing. Boy was I wrong. Nana and I both found this to be amazing. This will be a frequent repeat in our households.

I was underwhelmed by the idea of it, but was surprised at how much flavour it had. Now I just need to get a zester or microplaner. Then it'll be even easier.

I underestimated this one as well and couldn't stop eating these! Your broccoli looks so good!

Simple, yes, but so delicious!
