2 Pounds Broccoli, Cut into Florets

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

2 Garlic Cloves, Minced

1 Onion, Sliced Thinly

1 Lemon, Juiced

Salt and Pepper to Taste

½ Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes, to Taste

¼ Cup Green or Black Olives

½ Cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1 Cup Shredded Parmesan


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When the water is boiling, add the broccoli all at once and blanch until crisp-tender, bright, and green, usually 2 to 3 minutes. Immediately drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until softened and beginning to caramelize, about 7 minutes. Turn off the heat and stir the broccoli into the onion and garlic mixture, along with the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.
  4. Transfer the vegetables to the prepared baking dish and stir in the olives. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and Parmesan.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and golden on top.
