grilled broccoli with chilli and garlic

Broccoli like you’ve never tasted before.

2 heads of broccoli, separated into florets

115 ml olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
2 mild red chillies, thinly sliced
toasted almond flakes or lemon, thinly sliced
Blanch broccoli in a large pot of boiling water for 2 minutes exactly. Remove and dunk in ice-cold water to stop it cooking. Drain and allow to dry completely – this will take some time. Toss with 45 ml oil and season generously. Grill broccoli on a smoking hot griddle pan in several batches, turning to grill all over.
Sautee garlic and chilli in the remaining oil until golden. Toss with the broccoli. Garnish with almond or lemon.
