Tenderstem broccoli love 

I have never kept my love for Tenderstem broccoli hidden. It is my go-to vegetable that I eat at very opportunity. On more than one occasion I will eat a bit plate of it for my lunch – which is what I did at the weekend when I took the photos for my Roasted Parmesan Tenderstem Broccoli. 

There is no denying it, I am obsessed with Tenderstem broccoli. I’ve always liked broccoli but like turned into an obsession just over a year ago when I was buying around five packs of Tenderstem a week. 

New ways to prepare Tenderstem broccoli 

Usually I just steam the Tenderstem and it is always delicious. But I did want to think of other ways to make it even more exciting. The first was my Tenderstem Broccoli with Oyster Sauce & Garlic. I then came up with this recipe – Roasted Parmesan Tenderstem Broccoli. 

I made this recipe and put it on my Instastory asking people if they wanted the recipe. I wasn’t sure if people would be interested because it is pretty simple but quite a few people said they wanted the recipe – so here it is!

Simple but delicious 

As I said it really is quite simple, but it is really tasty so a win win in my opinion! The Tenderstem gets lovely and crisp and the Parmesan adds a salty flavour which goes well with the garlic. Tenderstem does vary; sometimes you can get quick thick stems whilst other times it can be really skinny. Adjust the time you roast it in the oven accordingly because you want the stems to be tender but you don’t want the tops to get too brown!

This works great as a side dish for any meal, but would be particularly good at a BBQ.

    I have done this recipe several times and it always turns out delicious. I do use crushed fresh garlic as I don’t keep garlic granules in my pantry

      So pleased you like it Carol 🙂 You’re clearly not as lazy as I am! Peeling garlic is one of my least favourite cooking jobs!
