Broccoli Has Never Been So Much Fun...

I'll be the first to admit that I don't eat as many vegetables as I should. I like my veggies just fine, but it's hard to come up with ways to cook them that are creative and fun, and so usually I just don't bother. Is there anything less exciting than a bag of mixed greens doused with bottled red wine vinaigrette? I think side dishes in general are sort of daunting--by the time you make your main dinner, who wants to mess with anything else? (I have a friend who actually made a New Year's resolution to prepare more side dishes.)

All this being said, I was excited when I came across this recipe for Broccoli with Toasted Garlic Crumbs in the "quick kitchen" section of Gourmet. It was delicious, and it's a great way to use up leftover panko bread crumbs, which add a delightful light, nongreasy crunch to this dish.

Try it! Try it! You'll love it!
