This is one broccoli dish that has kids and grown-ups alike demanding seconds. Tastes like pizza, acts like health food! It makes a perfect side or vegetarian main with a nice grain to go alongside.


  • 1 head of broccoli
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons grated pecorino or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried chile flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Sea salt and fresh-cracked black pepper

Cooking Directions

Steam the broccoli whole for a lovely presentation, or speed the process along by breaking or cutting into bite-size florets. Steam the broccoli until you can easily insert a knife into the center of the broccoli head (about 20 minutes) or a fork into the larger florets (5 to 6 minutes).

Preheat the broiler. Drain the broccoli and place it in a baking dish. Drizzle it with the oil, and sprinkle it with cheese, chile flakes, and oregano. Broil the broccoli until the cheese is golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Squeeze some lemon juice onto the broccoli, season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.
