    Sesame, Chilli and Honey-Drizzled Broccoli

    Lightly cooked tenderstem broccoli is delicious drizzled with this sweet dressing - it really soaks into the florets so that each mouthful is well flavoured and juicy. Adapt the amount of chilli you add depending on how hot you want the dish.

    Cook's tips

    Prepare the broccoli just before you are ready to serve. Have the dressing ready and a pan of water on the hob brought up to boil. Dress the broccoli just before serving, as it will discolour quickly if you dress it too far ahead.


    Use standard broccoli as an alternative.
    Try a pinch of dried chilli flakes instead of the fresh chilli.
