Units Scale
  • 1 Large Head Broccoli
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan, Grated
  • 1/4 cup Pepitas (Pumpkin Seeds)


  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F. Get a large sheet tray out and set aside.
  2. Using a large chef’s knife, trim the florets from the broccoli stem and place into a microwave safe bowl.
  3. Pour 2 tbsp of water into the bowl with broccoli, cover and microwave for 2 minutes to slightly steam the broccoli.
  4. Sprinkle half of the grated Parmesan onto your sheet tray. Then top with the broccoli florets, then sprinkle the pepitas over top and finally top with the remaining Parmesan.
  5. Place the broccoli into the oven and roast for 15-18 minutes until the cheese is melted and the broccoli is crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and using a thin spatula, lift up the cheesy broccoli goodness and place onto a serving platter. Enjoy hot!
