There’s really not much to say about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe. Garlicky crumb-coated broccoli (p 334) was a huge hit with me. All week. I made this dish at least 3 times because I found it incredibly difficult to photograph (and clearly didn’t quite “get it” after so many tries!). Normally I would serve this as a side dish with some meat but Neil was out all week and I don’t generally cook for myself when he’s not there. I ate this mixed in with some pasta, on top of rice and as a snack. It’s pretty versatile.
As Dorie herself says, “rolling broccoli around in some buttery breadcrumbs flavoured with garlic, lemon and herbs is [...] transformative.” Had I been introduced to broccoli with this recipe, I might have been a fan much earlier in my life. It really is that good
