Toasted Broccoli

In my opinion, roasting vegetables is the easiest and tastiest way to cook them, however, sometimes you just need a different option. So whether you don't have a free oven or don't have a lot of time, Toasted Broccoli from Ellie Kreiger is a great alternative to roasting. The broccoli is quickly steamed in the microwave and then coated in a delicious bread crumb and spice mixture which adds tons of flavor and complexity to the dish. It's such an easy side dish that it almost feels like cheating.
