About this Recipe

We’re partnering with Lettuce Grow to help you eat green. This recipe is inspired by the famous broccoli toast at Kismet restaurant in Los Angeles. Here, broccoli is quickly roasted, then arranged onto rustic bread that’s been slathered with thick strained yogurt or ricotta. Top it off with fresh herbs, citrus, and toasted pumpkin seeds for crunch. All of the produce used here can be harvested from Lettuce Grow’s vertical garden, the Farmstand, which allows you to grow your own produce in three to seven weeks - reducing water and transportation emissions exponentially. These ingredients can also be found at your local grocery store or farmer’s market.
