Ingredients

  • 25g butter
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g white breadcrumbs
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper , to season
  • 1 tbsp chopped thyme leaves
  • 25g grated parmesan (or vegetarian alternative)
  • 700g purple sprouting broccoli
  • a little olive oil , to drizzle
  • lemon wedges, to garnish

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the butter and olive oil in a large frying pan. When the foaming subsides, add the white breadcrumbs and stir constantly over a high heat until crisp and golden. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and the chopped thyme leaves. Tip the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool, then stir in grated Parmesan.

  • STEP 2

    Add the purple sprouting broccoli to a pan of boiling salted water, so the water just covers it. Cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Drain and put back in the pan, drizzle with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper and reheat, shaking gently.

  • STEP 3

    Arrange neatly on a warmed serving dish and scatter over the Parmesan crumbs. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
