Broccoli is hands down one of my favourite veggies. There are many ways to prepare this delicious and hearty cruciferous veg and this one is up there.
The high heat slightly caramelizes the broccoli leaving it somewhat crispy on the outside, soft in the middle with a nice saltiness from the olives and parmesan. Broccoli is very low in natural sugars so adding a very small amount helps with the process resulting in a sweet, crispy, salty and smooth bite of broccoli in your mouth, enough to convert even the biggest hater!
1 head of broccoli cut into large florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt & pepper
1/2 teaspoon coconut or cane sugar (optional)
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (optional)
Green olives, pitted & chopped
Juice of ½ lemon
