    Purple-sprouting broccoli with chilli & lemon

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 8

    Ingredients

    2 x 200g packs purple-sprouting broccoli
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 red chillies, thinly sliced
    Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
     

    Method

    1. Halve any large spears of broccoli lengthways then cook in a large pan of boiling, salted water for 3 minutes. Drain well.

    2. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan or wok and, when the oil starts to smoke, add the chillies. Sizzle for a few seconds then add the broccoli and a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid and cook for 3 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice.

    3. Lift the lid – the broccoli will be a little browned in places – and stir in the lemon zest and juice. Serve immediately.
