1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, (finely grated)

  2. Cut broccoli florets into bite size pieces and broccoli stalks into thin round slices. Toss broccoli, garlic, olive oil, salt and black pepper together in a large bowl; set aside.
  3. Toast panko by spreading it into a 13- x 9-inch metal cake pan and baking it for about 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Add toasted panko to broccoli mixture; toss to combine.
