  • 2 lbs Broccoli Florets cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 3-4 Garlic Cloves minced
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion diced
  • 1 Cup Button Mushrooms sliced or quartered
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Cup Low-fat Milk or milk of choice dairy or non-dairy
  • 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp Whole-Wheat Panko Breadcrumbs Or Gluten-free


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 2-quart baking dish with cooking oil spray.
  • Add the broccoli florets to a steaming basket and place it over a pot with boiling water. Cover and steam until just tender, then transfer the broccoli to the prepared casserole.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic, mushrooms and smoked paprika and continue to cook, stirring occasionally for 5-6 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small pot over medium heat whisk milk, cornstarch, salt, and pepper, until starts to thicken, 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer the onion mushroom mix to the casserole, and pour over the milk sauce. Clean the pan with a paper towel, and lightly spray with cooking oil spray.
  • Stir the breadcrumbs over medium heat, until golden, then sprinkle over the casserole.
  • Place the casserole into the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
