"A nice twist on the standard steamed broccoli and cauliflower. Nothing difficult, but it has a lot of flavor. A mix of black chopped olives, olive oil and fresh bread crumbs ... Just tossed with steamed broccoli and cauliflower."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Bread Crumbs ... Add 2-3 slices of bread to a food processor and pulse a few times to chop. Add the bread crumbs to a medium dry saute pan on medium high heat stirring often until toasty and golden brown (you want them crunchy). Remove from the pan and add to a small bowl and let them cool.

Step 2

Broccoli and Cauliflower ... In that same saute pan, add the vegetables and cover as much as possible with water. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce to medium/medium low heat and simmer until the vegetables are tender.

Step 3

Finish ... Add the olive oil, Italian seasoning and olives to the toasted bread crumbs and mix well.

Step 4

Drain the broccoli and cauliflower and transfer to a serving bowl, add the butter, and season with salt and pepper. Toss lightly. Then add in the bread crumb mixture and toss again.

Step 5

Serve ... Just ENJOY!

Made this broccoli and cauliflower dish to go with our pork chops tonight, we enjoyed it very much, a flavourful combination. I had no Italian seasoning in so I used Herbs de Provence, worked very nicely. The crumb black olive topping was a nice touch. Thanks for posting.
