Summary: Everybody loves this easy and delicious vegetable dip, so you will serve it again and again. Great as a snack or starter, to take round to friends when invited for drinks, or to a picnic.
Summary: The Spring is here, and with it, purple sprouting broccoli ! There are endless ways of preparing this highly nutritious and stunningly beautiful cruciferous, but as with all spring vegetables, I prefer light cooking methods, to keep them vibrant green and still slightly crunchy.
Try this warm salad of braised purple sprouting on a bed of rocket dressed with green or red pesto and, optionally, top with a little mozzarella, vegetarian parmesan or pecorino.
Don't miss my trick for halving cherry tomatoes in 5 seconds ...
Make a homemade pesto out of wild garlic, baby spinach, nuts, olive oil, a little sea salt and lemon juice for a delicious garlic kick.
Equally delicious cold, served as a starter.
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a starter.
