Roasted Broccoli with Spicy Crumbs


This is from Food & Wine, and I must say it’s awesome! I love the spicy crumbs and Dijon and it really takes broccoli to the next level! I used chorizio and added more garlic to make it even spicier and cut back the olive oil to make it a little healthier.

2 oz sliced pepperoni or chorizo
3 garlic cloves
1 c panko
Olive oil spray
2 lb broccoli, cut into long spears
2 TBSP Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 425°.

In a mini food processor, pulse the pepperoni with the garlic until finely chopped. Add the panko and pulse just to combine.

In a medium non-stick skillet, cook the breadcrumbs over moderate heat, stirring, until crisp and golden, about 5 minutes. Scrape onto a plate and let cool.

Spread the broccoli on a baking sheet, spray with olive oil and season with salt. Roast for about 15 minutes, turning once, until tender and browned in spots.

Spread the mustard on one side of the broccoli and sprinkle with crumbs.

Serves 4 – 6.
