Broccoli Crumble

I saw the idea a long time ago in some magazine, and then the Broccoli season has “arrived” and I’ve remembered it and made it. The dish is so successful, that I ended up repeating it multiple times since.


1 flower head of broccoli
1/4 glass bread crumbs (I use the “golden” ones, usually used for schnitzels)
1 garlic clove
2 tbsp. of grated hard cheese, preferably Parmigiano or Grana Padano, but could also be Kashkaval or Pecorino
1 tsp. sesame seeds
Salt, Pepper
1 tbsp. of olive oil


  1. Separate the broccoli head into small “flowers”. Now it needs to be softened. There are two ways of doing it, other cooking it in a boiling water for a couple of minutes, or putting it in a microwave for 2-3 minutes. The desired condition is to have the broccoli with the vivid green color and crunchy substance.
  2. Mix all the ingredients besides the broccoli and the olive oil in a bowl. Then add the oil and mash with a spoon until it becomes a uniform mass. Beware of lumps.
  3. Put all the broccoli in a baking form, cover it with the mixture and bake in an oven at 190C for 20 minutes.

Serving is a matter of taste, personally, I like it warm.

Bon Appetit!
