The Big Glut Recipe – April

Parmesan coated purple sprouting broccoli

Among the foods in season are prawns, watercress, purple sprouting broccoli, spinach and lettuce. So you have a glut of purple sprouting broccoli. Why not make something of it and serve this simple fare for four?

  • 500g (18oz) purple sprouting broccoli, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Parmesan or Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Heat the oven to 200°C/Gas Mark 6 and line a baking tray with parchment. Combine olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, with salt and pepper to taste in a bowl then add the broccoli and give it a good coating. Pop the broccoli in the baking tray in a single layer and roast in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes. Check during cooking, you want the broccoli tender and the edges a little crispy.
