Mediterranean Broccoli Feta Casserole Recipe: A Healthy Spin on Dinner by Jan Mostrom

Mediterranean Broccoli Feta Casserole Recipe: A Healthy Spin on Dinner

I love eating plant-based meals. And if they are based on the Mediterranean Diet, that makes them even better. I came home today and was so hungry that I just wanted something healthy and fast! This Mediterranean broccoli feta casserole recipe was perfect, and I was eating it in about 30 minutes.

This broccoli casserole recipe has just a few wholesome ingredients: broccoli, bell pepper, kalamata olives, olive oil, feta cheese, Parmesan cheese and fresh dill. The broccoli is boiled quickly to soften it up a bit before being layered with the other ingredients. Bake the casserole for about 15 to 20 minutes and it's done. The result is a healthy vegetable casserole that's the perfect side dish or vegetarian main dish.

Serve this vegetarian cheesy broccoli dish for lunch or dinner with hot bread or a salad, or as a side dish with your favorite protein.

Recipe Notes

  • If you prefer crisp-tender broccoli like I do, only cook it for about 2 minutes.
  • I used yellow bell pepper, but you could use red, green, orange or a combination.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place a medium pot of water on the stove on high and bring to a boil. Gently place broccoli into boiling water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain. Put the broccoli into a small casserole dish.
  2. Layer the pepper over the broccoli.
  3. Add the olive pieces on top of broccoli. Drizzle the olive oil all over and spread feta and Parmesan over the top. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Sprinkle half of the dill on top.
  4. Bake in a preheated 375-degree F oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese is browned. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with remaining dill.
