Panko-Parmesan Roasted Broccoli


This roasted broccoli side dish is crunchy, salty, earthy, and super addicting! The crusty panko-Parmesan coating may add some calories but it's definitely a good way to introduce broccoli to anyone who says they don't like it, plus it satisfies a craving for fried food. Great served with steak, chicken, or fish.

  • 2 heads broccoli, cut into florets

  • cup panko bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  2. Toss broccoli, bread crumbs, olive oil, garlic powder, lemon zest, salt, black pepper, and pepper flakes on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Toss broccoli and continue to roast until golden brown around the edges and slightly crisp, but not mushy, about 10 more minutes.

  4. Remove from the oven. Immediately drizzle with lemon juice, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve.

Cook's Note:

Using red pepper flakes is optional.
