When broccoli is almost done, take the tray out, move the broccoli to one side to make room to spread out the breadcrumbs on the tray.

Pile combined broccoli and breadcrumbs into serving bowl.
1.Breadcrumbs - I don't use fancy equipment to make my own breadcrumbs. I just roughly chop stale sandwich bread, then use my fingers to crumble them. I like it chunky - more texture!2. Instead of parmesan, you could add 1/4 tsp of salt and 1 crushed garlic clove - this will make it healthier (and vegan).3. Nutrition per serving.
