Ingredients

  • 400g purple sprouting broccoli, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra to serve
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 100g blanched almonds, toasted and roughly chopped

DRESSING

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small clove garlic, sliced
  • 100g blue cheese, crumbled
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 30g natural yogurt
  • a small bunch chives, finely chopped

Method

  • STEP 1

    Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook the broccoli for 2 minutes until tender, drain well and tip into a bowl with the olive oil and lemon juice. Cool completely.

  • STEP 2

    To make the dressing, fry the garlic with the olive oil in a pan for 2 minutes. Put the rest of the dressing ingredients into a blender along with the fried garlic and oil, and season generously. Whizz until completely smooth, adding 1-2 tbsp of water if it’s a little thick.

  • STEP 3

    To finish, put the broccoli on a serving plate and drizzle generously with the dressing and a splash of olive oil followed by the chopped almonds.
