A nice side dish for a roast dinner.

Sprouting broccoli with mushrooms and stilton – serves 6

  • 500g purple sprouting broccoli or other long-stemmed broccoli
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • a knob of butter
  • 500g chestnut mushrooms, halved or quartered
  • 50g creamy stilton, crumbled
  • a drizzle of best olvie oil

Boil the broccoli in lots of very salt water for about 3 minutes, or until bright green and not quite tender, then drain and rinse under cold water to stop it cooking further. Drain well and set aside (you can do this in advance if you like).

Heat the oil and butter in a large frying pan over a high heat. When the butter is sizzling, add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, until golden.

Add the broccoli and toss with the mushrooms. Cover the pan and cook for about 3 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until the broccoli is heated through and the mushrooms have softened.

Season well, then tip into a serving bowl, scatter over the cheese and drizzle over some of your best olive oil.

Who says you can’t have broccoli for breakfast? It’s purple sprouting broccoli season and we can’t resist buying when we see it. Also good on a slice of toasted sourdough.

Crispy PSB with poached eggs – serves 2

  • 300g purple sprouting broccoli
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • poached eggs, to serve

Heat the grill to high.

Meanwhile, steam the broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes, then dry well with kitchen paper.

Put the soy sauce, honey and vegetable oil in a bowl and whisk to combine.

Put the broccoli into a roasting tin, pour over the marinade and toss gently, then sprinkle over the sesame seeds. Put the tin under the grill for 5-8 minutes or until the broccoli is crispy.

Divide the broccoli between warm plates and top with a poached egg. Serve with some toast if you like.

PSB is our veg saviour early in the year when winter is lingering and spring still seems too far away. We loved this roasted version with a tangy lemon dressing.

Roasted PSB with feta & preserved lemons – serves 4 to 6 as a side

  • 500g purple sprouting broccoli
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • 1 preserved lemon, flesh and rind chopped, plus 1 tbsp juice from the jar
  • 80g yoghurt
  • 1 garlic cloves, grated
  • 30g feta

Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

Put the PSB into large roasting tin, add the olive oil and red chilli, season with salt and pepper, then toss with your hands.

Roast for 15 minutes, turning halfway, until tender and starting to char.

Meanwhile stir the preserved lemon, juice and garlic into the yoghurt.

Crumble the feta over the roasted broccoli and drizzle with yoghurt dressing and your best olive oil.
