Ingredients

    1 pound(s) broccoli, florets, fresh
    1 Tbsp regular butter
    1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
    1/2 cup(s) dried bread crumbs, panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
    1 tsp lemon zest
    1/4 tsp table salt

Directions

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large skillet. Place broccoli in a steamer basket and set over water. Cover pot and steam until broccoli is crisp-tender, about 5 to 6 minutes; drain. Alternatively, you can cook broccoli in microwave.


Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add panko bread crumbs, increase heat to medium, and cook, stirring often, until lightly toasted, about 2 to 3 minutes.


Remove skillet from heat; stir in lemon zest and salt.


Spoon broccoli into a serving bowl and toss with crumbs. Yields about 1 cup of broccoli and 2 tablespoons of crumbs per serving.
