Broccoli

Ingredients

  • 400 g (14 oz) broccoli
  • 20 ml (β…” fl oz) olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Remove the florets from the broccoli and discard. Trim one of the long sides of the stem so it is flat and, using a mandolin, slice lengthways into 1 mm (1/32 inch) thick slices. You will need 18 slices. Bring a small saucepan of water to the boil. Blanch the broccoli stem for 1 minute. Drain well and season with the oil, salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
