Lemon Parmesan Broccoli!

>> Saturday, October 23, 2010

Here is a great way to shake up your broccoli! Broccoli on its own is a Free Veg, meaning that you can eat it in generous amounts without taking in many calories (it's only 30 cal per cup!). It is not quite free with the addition of a little bit of Lite Parmesan... but it's pretty darn close!


  • 6 cups of broccoli (about 4 heads)
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp light powdered Parmesan cheese
Cut your broccoli into florets. The broccoli needs to be dry - if you wash it, be sure to dry it thouroughly. Arrange in a 9x13" baking dish.

Zest your lemon and finely chop the pile of zest you get. Chop your lemon in half.

Spray broccoli briefly with an aerosol sprayer such as Pam (a great alternative to oil!). Add a bit of salt & pepper to taste, and squeeze the juice of one half of your lemon on the broccoli. Put your dish of broccoli in a preheated oven at 400C for 20-25 mins. The goal is for the tips of the broccoli to be a little crispy, but not burned.

Remove from oven, sprinkle with the lemon zest, squeeze the juice from your other half of lemon all over the broccoli and top with the parmesan cheese. Return to the oven for 1-2 mins until the parmesan melts, then serve!

Makes 6 servings. Per serving:
  • 50 cal
  • only 1g fat!
