There’s nothing wrong with roasted broccoli, but it’s good to switch up your side dishes every now and then. Tonight, we’re making Alexandra Stafford’s spicy broccoli sauté (from her Cookbook, Bread Toast Crumbs). It’s simple yet flavorful, totally crowd-pleasing and blanketed in breadcrumbs—what could be bad about that?
This recipe calls for homemade breadcrumbs, which are an excellent way to use up the stale loaf of bread you can’t bring yourself to toss. Simply tear up a loaf, blitz it in the food processor and use as needed to instantly upgrade a dish. (You can store the crumbs in the freezer to have at the ready.)
Alexandra (you can call her Ali) Stafford is best known for her popular food blog, Alexandra's Kitchen.
