Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetables, not only is it incredibly tasty but it is also rich in vitamins ad minerals, most notably vitamin C, potassium and phytochemical sulforaphane.
Unfortunately it is not to everyone’s taste. If a member of your family is not keen on it this certainly is not the dish to use if you wish to deceive them however it might just change their minds on this tremendous vegetable, alternatively save it all for yourself.
This remarkably simple and quick dish can be served as part of a main meal or as a light dinner.
Recipe (serves 1):
Place 100ml of water on medium heat and leave until boiling, add the broccoli florets and steam until soft.
Meanwhile prepare the leek and garlic clove, adding to a pan with a drizzle of oil sauté until lightly caramalised, by which time the florets should be soft and ready to be drained before being added to the mixture. Continue to sauté and serve with a sprinkle of pepper.
