Broccoli sometimes it gets a bad rap but, like anything, if you give it a bit of love and cook it just right, it's going to taste delicious – a little bit of butter and some salt and pepper make this a perfect side for practically any dish!

Ingredients

  • 1 head of broccoli
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 5g unsalted butter or a splash of Extra virgin olive oil

Recipe Info

1. Trim the florets off your broccoli, trying to keep them a fairly even size. Chop the tough end off of the stalk and discard, then halve lengthways and finely slice the rest of the stalk.

2. Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Once boiling, add the florets and sliced stalk and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender – you should be able to poke the tip of a knife into the florets easily.

3. Drain in a colander, then tip back into the hot pan, off the heat. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper, add a small knob of butter or a splash of extra virgin olive oil and toss to coat. Tip into a serving dish or on the sides of your plates and serve.
