Broccoli with bread crumbs

Steamed broccoli with lemon peel and garlic taste wonderful. The bread crumbs gives crispiness to broccoli. When broccoli is steamed it doesn't lose color, the bright green with golden brown makes you to have more. My broccoli was not so fresh so I did not get nice color. I got this healthy recipe from a magazine.

  • Broccoli florets - 1.5 pounds or 1 medium floret
  • Olive oil - 1/4 cup
  • Garlic - 4 cloves, finely chopped
  • Ginger - 1 tsp, finely grated
  • Panko crumbs or regular bread crumbs - 2/3 cup
  • Soy sauce - 2 tsp
  • Gated lemon peel - 1 tbsp
  • Pepper and salt - to taste


Put 1 inch of water in a heavy pot, then put a steamer  basket inside the pot and bring to boil. Add broccoli and stem, covered until tender, say 10 minutes. Heat oil in a wide pan. Add grated ginger and garlic. Cook for a minute in a low flame.
Stir in bread crumbs, soy sauce, pepper and salt and cook. Stir occasionally, until the bread crumbs are golden brown. Transfer the broccoli with bread crumbs and toss to coat. Remove from heat and add the grated lemon peel.
Serve warm.
