Ingredients

  • 1kg broccoli
  • 50g butter , optional

Method

  • STEP 1

    Snap the broccoli into medium-sized florets. It’s important to make them an even size so they all cook at the same rate. Put the florets into a steamer or colander set over a pan of boiling water. Cover with a lid or tight-fitting foil and steam for 5 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, place the butter in a small pan and season well. Heat until the butter is foaming. When ready to serve, tip the broccoli into warmed serving dish and drizzle with the butter. Serve straight away.
