  • Steam the broccoli florets for 3 minutes. They should soften, but still have a bite to them. Slice them and let them dry completely.
  • Drizzle a lined baking tray with olive oil and sprinkle with your choice of cheese. You can also use a stainless steel baking tray without the parchment paper to make them extra crispy. Distribute the broccoli florets evenly and smash them with a jar or cup. Season with salt, pepper, and optionally chili flakes.
  • Bake in the preheated oven at 400 degrees F for about 25 minutes until crispy.
  • Let it cool for a bit and carefully peel the baking paper off. Break into pieces and enjoy immediately.
