  • 1 1/2  pounds fresh broccoli, stem on (about 3 large heads or 6 heaping cups florets)
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese (the powdery kind)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • Chop the broccoli into medium sized florets (leave a good amount of the stem for a nice shape; see the photo or How to Cut Broccoli).
  • Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat it on medium high heat. Add broccoli and salt. Cook 3 to 4 minutes until starting to brown, stirring occasionally. 
  • Sprinkle the grated Parmesan cheese over the broccoli, followed by the cheddar cheese. Add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of the skillet and cover with a lid. Cook another 1 minute until cheese is melted and the water cooks out. Serve immediately!
