Parmesan Broccoli Bake

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cook time: 20 minutes


  • 1 large bunch fresh Tower Garden basil
  • 500g Tower Garden broccoli crowns
  • 60g shaved Parmesan cheese
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for coating the baking pan
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 175° C.
  2. In a food processor or blender, combine about 3 tablespoons of olive oil with basil, garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Blend ingredients into a paste. (If it seems too thick, add more oil.)
  3. Coat a medium-sized baking pan with olive oil to prevent sticking. Add the broccoli crowns to the pan and top with the basil-garlic paste.
  4. Stir, making sure every piece of broccoli is covered in the basil-garlic paste. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste, and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.
  5. Bake for 12–15 minutes. Then broil for 2 more minutes to brown the cheese.
  6. Leave the pan in the oven at 65° C to keep the dish warm until ready to serve.
