Cook This: Smashed Broccoli

If you’re searching for innovative methods to cook and present vegetables, look no further than this tempting smashed broccoli recipe. I spotted this recipe on Instagram and can honestly attest this kitchen sorcery where each broccoli floret turns into a crispy, cheesy delight, ensuring every forkful is a gourmet experience. Prep is easy, too:


Broccoli florets


Freshly grated parmesan cheese

Olive oil


Steam the broccoli florets until they are slightly mushy. Do not skip this step! Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Smoosh the broccoli florets into flat circles with the help of the bottom of a glass cup. Brush each squashed floret with olive oil on each side. Sprinkle paprika and freshly grated parmesan cheese (use reckless abandon!) on top. Bake at 400 degrees until cheese is melted. Enjoy!
