Baked Broccoli

It’s pretty clear how much I love broccoli. It’s so healthy, full of fiber, and delicious. I make this pretty often when I need a quick veggie side. It’s a GREAT recipe to get kids to start liking veggies, for busy grad students, and for anyone who likes broccoli! Here’s what you’ll need:

2 stocks of broccoli (cut it up so that the florets are still pretty big)
2 egg whites
1/3 cup of bread crumbs
salt
pepper
parsley

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.

Cut up the broccoli.

In a bowl, crack your eggs and leave just the egg whites.

Put the broccoli in the bowl and mix well with the egg whites.

Add in a sprinkle of parsley, pepper, and salt. Then add in the bread crumbs. Mix everything well- add in more bread crumbs if you want it more breaded.

Lightly spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Pour the broccoli onto the cookie sheet. Flip the florets so that they are facing stem up.

Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

After about 7 minutes take a spatula and unstick them from the bottom of the pan and then bake the rest of the time.

When done, enjoy with some chicken or use it as a healthy snack!

I really like this recipe because it’s easy and the broccoli turns out so crispy and delicious. If you’re feeling bold, add a spicy dipping sauce- yum.

Enjoy!
