  • Main Ingredient: tenderstem
  • Preparation Time: Under 30 mins
  • Serves: 4+

Ingredients

  • You'll need:

    300g Tenderstem broccoli
    175g fresh ricotta
    Zest of ½ lemon, removed with a zester rather than grated
    Juice 1 lemon
    About 8 tbs extra virgin olive oil
    50g Parmesan
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Tenderstem has a delicate, slightly sweet flavour so it's great with muted ingredients such as ricotta. Steam or boil it and you have the makings of a chic salad or starter, and one that's healthy too...



Serves: 4

Prep & cooking: 10 Minutes

What to do:

Steam the Tenderstem for 3-4 minutes until just tender.

While the Tenderstem is cooking gently break the ricotta into lumps and shave the parmesan into nice curls.

Put the hot Tenderstem onto plates and dot ricotta over the top. Sprinkle on the zest and spoon on some lemon juice. Scatter the parmesan over each serving. Drizzle with the olive oil, sprinkle with salt, grind on some black pepper and serve...
