Add some fun to your broccoli side dish with a crispy wheat germ topping. It's delicious hot out of the oven served with chicken, fish or beef and brown rice or potato.

Serves 4

1 pound broccoli florets

3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

2 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese

4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided

Preheat oven to 400° F.

Rinse broccoli and place in an 11 x 7-inch casserole dish. Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil on top along with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Toss until well coated.

Roast broccoli for 12 to15 minutes or until lightly browned. While broccoli cooks, combine wheat germ, remaining olive oil, walnuts, cheese and 2 tablespoons lemon juice.

Once broccoli is cooked, turn it over and sprinkle evenly with the wheat germ mixture. Bake for an additional 3 to 5 minutes until the top is toasted and brown. Top with remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice and serve immediately.
