I had seen this viral recipe on TikTok and knew my family aka Hungry Friends would love it! They came out super crispy and they were a breeze to make.
For this recipe, make sure you don’t slice your broccoli into small florets. Keep them medium to large in size – sometimes slicing two small buds together. You’re going to get your pot water boiling, add in the broccoli pieces, salt it and let it get back up to a boil. Don’t walk away and forget – you do not want mushy pieces of vegetable. You want them JUST fork tender.
I used shredded parmesan cheese for that sharp flavor and harder consistency to create a chip like texture. My inkling is that any cheese will work but I haven’t tried mozzarella or cheddar for example, so I can’t say for sure.

Crispy Parmesan Broccoli Chips
- 3 crowns broccoli, cut into large florets
- 10 oz shredded parmesan cheese
- salt, garlic powder + onion powder to taste
- Preheat your oven to 420℉. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Bring a large pot of water (1/2 way full) to a boil. Add in the large florets and 1 tsp salt and bring back to a boil. Blanch the broccoli for just a minute or two, then strain and transfer to a platter lined with paper towels. Do not over boil the broccoli.
- Sprinkle the baking sheet evenly with your cheese so that there is a thin layer. Next transfer the broccoli to the sheet, slightly spacing them out so that you have room to mash them. Take a small shot glass and smash the broccoli pieces down gently but firmly. Sprinkle the tops with salt, onion powder and a little garlic powder. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the cheese has turned golden brown and the broccoli is turning crispy. Allow to cool slightly and then break apart to serve.
