If you’re a firm believer that cheese makes anything better (bread, potatoes, macaroni, or really any carb for that matter), you’re in luck. According to a recent tweet from Amanda Freitag, a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese will make a world of difference when it comes to your broccoli. That and lemon juice. “Let’s reimagine broccoli together with this incredibly delicious and #easyAF way of preparing it: charred with lemon and Parmesan,” she wrote, adding, “Trust me when I tell you even the pickiest eaters won’t pass on this one.” Amanda included a link to a YouTube video explaining how to make said broccoli dish.
As for when to apply the two toppings? The blogger behind The House of Nash Eats, who follows a similar recipe, says she roasts her broccoli in the oven and then tosses the florets with a splash of fresh-squeezed lemon juice. She then tops it with grated Parmesan right before serving.
