Broccoli and Breadcrumbs



Broccoli with Spiced Breadcrumbs


  • 1 lb broccoli cut into flowerets
  • 3/4 cup fine bread crumbs (whole wheat)
  • 3 TBS olive oil
  • 1 tsp cardamom
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, drained


Steam the broccoli just until crisp-tender and immediately run under cold water. Drain and dry on paper towels.

In a small skillet, heat the olive oil and add the bread crumbs. Saute until golden brown. Combine the crumbs with the cardamom and salt.

To serve, put bread crumbs in one small bowl and yogurt in another. Dip broccoli in sour cream and then bread crumbs.

This is an incredible recipe and when we make our breadcrumbs, we prefer using whole wheat bread or a fresh baguette from Bread Furst.
