Method

  1. Drop the broccoli florets into a pan of boiling salted water, bring back to the boil, cook for 3-5 mins until tender, then drain.
  2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan and, once sizzling, add the broccoli. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle in as much of the Parmesan as you want to use. Gently stir the florets in the cheese and butter. Scatter on a little more grated Parmesan to serve.

I like this dish for it's simplicity and ease of making. Added some burnt garlic for that extra edge!

My husband doesn't like broccoli but he really liked this recipe, even said I could make it again!

I wasn't sure about this... didn't really like the idea of frying the cooked broccoli in butter - but it was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making again, and will make a point of topping broccoli with parmesan (with or without the butter) in future as the combination works so well.

I would never have thought of adding Parmessan to Broccoli but how delicious is this - even my husband loves it. Will definitely be doing this again.

I boiled the broccoli with bay leaves and a slice of fresh lemon.
In the pan i used olive oil instead of butter.

Instead of normal butter, I used 1T Lurpak garlic butter and tossed the steamed broccoli in that. Finished off using the parmesan as suggested.
