25g of butter
4tbs olive oil
Seasoning – a pinch of salt & ground pepper
50g of breadcrumbs
1tbs of chopped thyme leaves
25 g of grated parmesan cheese
700g purple sprouting broccoli
Olive oil to drizzle
Lemon to garnish
1) Heat the butter and olive oil in a frying pan. It may foam for a while but when it subsides add the white breadcrumbs and stir constantly until crisp and golden. Season with salt, ground black pepper and the chopped thyme leaves. Tip the mixture into a bowl and leave to cool, then stir in grated Parmesan.
2) Add the purple sprouting broccoli to a pan of boiling salted water. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, until tender. Drain and put back in the pan, drizzle with a little olive oil, season with salt and pepper and reheat, shaking gently.
3) Place in a warmed serving dish and scatter over the Parmesan crumbs. Garnish with lemon and serve immediately.
