This recipe has been produced and tested in partnership with Tenderstem® broccoli


  • 200g Tenderstem® broccoli
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus a drizzle
  • ½ small garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp sumac, plus a pinch
  • chilli flakes (optional)
  • 2 slices of bloomer or sourdough

For the whipped tahini yogurt

  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • ½ small garlic clove, crushed
  • squeeze of lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp thick Greek yogurt


  • STEP 1

    Put the tahini, garlic, lemon, a pinch of salt and 2 tbsp ice cold water in a bowl and whisk until light and airy. Lightly fold in the yogurt. Taste and adjust the lemon and seasoning.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Arrange the Tenderstem® broccoli in a wide, ovenproof frying pan so it sits in a single layer fairly snugly. Pour over about 250ml boiling water to cover the Tenderstem® broccoli by 1cm, add a pinch of salt, and cover with a lid or baking sheet. Steam over a medium heat for 2-4 mins until bright green, then remove the lid and pour off any remaining water.

  • STEP 3

    Add the olive oil and garlic and toss with the Tenderstem® broccoli. Crack the eggs into two gaps in the Tenderstem® broccoli, sprinkle over the sumac, chilli flakes, if using, and some black pepper. Transfer to the oven and cook for 4-6 mins until the whites are set but the yolks are runny, and the Tenderstem® broccoli is tender. Toast the bread, and drizzle with a little olive oil.

  • STEP 4

    Dollop the tahini yogurt in teaspoons over the baked eggs and Tenderstem® broccoli, and sprinkle over a pinch of sumac. Serve with the olive oil toasts.
