Prep Time:


Cook Time:


4 Servings


About the Recipe


  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets, stems peeled and sliced

  • 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons whole-wheat panko breadcrumbs

  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced

  • 1/3 cup white wine

  • Pinch red pepper flakes

  • Sea salt

  • Zest of 1/2 lemo


Step 1

Cook the broccoli in a large pot of salted boiling water until just bright green, about 3 minutes. Drain and cool under cold running water. Drain again and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 2

Heat 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium-high heat in a small saucepan. Add the panko and cook, stirring, until the panko is just lightly toasted, 2 to 3 minutes. Set aside.

Step 3

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until it just turns golden around the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in the wine, pepper flakes and broccoli. Sprinkle with salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the broccoli is heated through and the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with the panko and lemon zest.
