I was never one that hated broccoli as so many did as a child. My mum made the green vegetable often as a side or served it with butter and ham. Yes, that’s a thing in Austria.

But I even know a lot of adults now who despise broccoli. Even though I like it, I get why a lot of people don’t. Being a recovering picky eater, I tried to incorporate foods I didn’t like by finding ways to prepare them so that I would. This way, I slowly incorporated tons of foods into my meal plan I never thought I would like.

Why am I telling you this story? By doing that my whole life, I became pretty good at turning polarizing food into tasty treats. A huge reason why I started this blog.

These Crispy Baked Hemp Seed Broccoli might change your mind if you are a broccoli hater. They could even rival your favourite chicken nuggets. Coated with a mix of breadcrumbs and nourishing hemp seeds from MEDIHEMP, they will satisfy your crunchy cravings. Just give this delicious recipe a try and let me know if I delivered. Scroll down for some tips and the recipe for this crunchy and mouthwatering treat.

Tips for making this recipe

  • Dry the broccoli thoroughly after washing. Otherwise, the coating will get soggy, and you end up with not so crispy broccoli.
  • I use two bowls for the coating process and have a hack to make it easier and less messy. I dip the broccoli florets into the flour and milk mixture first. Then I let them fall into the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture and shake the bowl vigorously. The result: Each floret gets evenly coated without getting your hands dirty.
  • You can make this recipe gluten-free by using the gluten-free flour and breadcrumbs of your choice.
  • Leave a bit of space in between every broccoli floret when placing them onto the oiled baking sheet.
  • Use a grilling or baking brush to coat every broccoli floret with the vegetable oil evenly. It ensures the broccoli florets will get crispy and brown all around.
  • Turn the florets after half the baking time to ensure an evenly brown crust.
