Bellaverde broccoli is quite delicious. It differs from regular broccoli in that it is long-stemmed, more tender and sweeter. It is always my preference to use it in my recipes and my family love it


  • A glug of olive oil
  • 8 fat, or 16 small chicken thighs
  • a knob of butter
  • 2 onions, peeled and sliced
  • Half tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp each of ground cinnamon, cumin and coriander
  • a walnut-sized piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 3 fat cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 (400g) can of chickpeas, drained
  • 700ml good chicken stock
  • 200g sweet stem, Bellaverde broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces.
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste


  • STEP 1
    Preheat the oven to 180oC/Fan 160oC/350oF/Gas 4.
  • STEP 2
    Heat the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over a medium to high heat. Season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper and brown on both sides. Remove from the pot and set aside.
  • STEP 3
    Dollop the butter and onions into the pot and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently until soft. Sprinkle in all the spices, the ginger, garlic, a little salt, and a really good grind of pepper. Stir through and gently fry for a further 1 min, before adding the chickpeas and stock, and returning the chicken to the pot. Pop into the oven for an hour.
  • STEP 4
    Meanwhile bring a pot of salted water to the boil, add the bellaverde® broccoli and simmer for 4 minutes, drain and set aside. Remove the pot of chicken from the oven and stir in the lemon zest and the cooked bellaverde® broccoli and heat through. Season to taste and serve with basmati rice and a dollop of yoghurt on the side.
