Ingredients

  • 230g purple sprouting broccoli, ends trimmed
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 2 clove/s garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp nonpareille capers
  • ½ lemon, juice

Method

  1. Place a lidded frying pan over a high heat with 100ml water. Bring to a quick steaming simmer, add the broccoli and cover with a lid, then cook for 4 minutes until just tender.

  2. Carefully pour off any excess water, then add the oil and return the pan to the heat. Once the broccoli has started to sizzle and fry, cook for 3 minutes, or until the broccoli is starting to colour slightly.

  3. Add the anchovies and mix well with tongs or a wooden spoon. Cook for around 2 minutes until the anchovies have coated the broccoli. Add the garlic and capers, cook for a further minute, stirring well, and finish with the lemon juice. Taste, season if needed and serve.
