    Purple sprouting broccoli kedgeree

    • Gluten Free
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    240g pack smoked haddock fillets
    160g Waitrose Purple Sprouting Broccoli Spears, trimmed
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    1 large leek, trimmed, halved and finely sliced
    2 tsp hot curry powder
    100g basmati rice, well rinsed
    200ml fresh vegetable stock
    ½ lemon, zest and juice
    Handful dill, chopped


    1. Cook the eggs in a large pan of simmering water for 8 minutes; drain, cool under cold water and set aside. Rinse out the pan and bring a fresh lot of water to a gentle simmer. Add the fish and simmer for 2 minutes, then add the broccoli and simmer for 2 minutes more. Lift everything out with a slotted spoon; let the broccoli drain on kitchen paper and leave the fish to cool on a plate, then flake.

    2. Rinse out the pan again then return to the heat with the oil and sauté the leek for 10 minutes, until soft. Add the curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, then stir in the rice and stock. Cover and simmer gently for about 12 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed.

    3. Take off the heat, season and stir in the lemon zest and juice, fish and broccoli. Leave to stand, covered, for 2 minutes while you peel and chop the eggs, then stir in the dill. Divide between plates and top with the eggs.


    Cook’s tip

    Try using asparagus or green beans instead of broccoli.
