- Olive oil for frying
- 1 small onion, finely diced
- 200-250g grated carrot (about 2 medium carrots)

- 10g fresh chives, snipped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- ½ tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp maple syrup
- Heat a glug of oil in a medium pan over a gentle heat. Fry the onion with a pinch of salt for 4-5 minutes until soft and translucent. Add the carrots and cook for a few minutes.
- Add the broccoli to the pan and cook for 2 minutes more or until both the carrot and broccoli are tender, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Transfer to a serving dish.
