Ingredients

  • 300g tenderstem broccoli, trimmed and halved lengthways
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • Parmesan shavings to serve

Method

  1.  Boil a full kettle of water. Put the broccoli in a medium heatproof bowl and pour over the boiling water. Leave the broccoli to blanch in the hot water for 3 minutes, then drain it in a colander in the sink.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and fry for 5 minutes until it starts to turn golden brown. Add the garlic, anchovies and finely chopped red chilli, then fry for a further minute. Add the blanched broccoli and fry for 2-3 minutes until tender.
  3. Squeeze in the lemon juice, season generously with salt and pepper, then thoroughly toss everything together to coat. Serve straightaway topped with parmesan shavings.
