The hemp parm that distinguishes this roasted broccoli dish is made by combining hemp seeds and nutritional yeast. Nutritional yeast, as any veg already knows, is the GOAT – but hemp seeds are also a pretty strong contender. Once you’ve bought a sack, you’ll find they come up more often than you ever imagined (like in our favorite sunbutter recipe).

Roasted broccoli goes to a happy place where the veg is crispy and a bit nutty, but be mindful not to let the delicate florets burn too much in the oven or they may become bitter.
