Meyer Lemon Broccoli

Category: Side Dishes

Products Used: Meyer Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

A spritz of lemon over broccoli is tasty, but tossing the hearty vegetable with our Meyer Lemon EVOO and breadcrumbs takes this side to another level of taste.


  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli florets
  • 3 tablespoons OTO Meyer Lemon EVOO
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


Fill a large pot halfway with water. Cover and bring water to a boil over high heat. Salt the water and add broccoli. Boil the broccoli until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, transfer the broccoli florets to a large bowl, and toss with the Meyer Lemon EVOO to coat.

Toast the breadcrumbs and cheese in the butter, about 3-5 minutes. Pour mixture over broccoli and serve immediately.
