Roy Finnamore’s Broccoli RecipePosted: January 31, 2012
For my first recipe post I thought I would write about something different, usually considered as ‘boring’. Broccoli is often seen as bland and baby food-like. Nonetheless, broccoli is the perfect vegetable for students: cheap, lasts long, and is often reduced at every supermarket (people really don’t seem to like it..).
So I decided to share a recipe that takes broccoli from blegh! to actually really tasty! This recipe is taken from Food 52. It’s a really easy recipe and it takes very little prep time. Then it’s up to the broccoli to do its work and you can do something else for two hours.
All you need is:
- 1 kg broccoli (Separated into florets, the big ones cut in half).
- 5 cloves garlic (sliced). (Yes I love garlic..)
- Chilli powder or even better a chilli (whole, de-seeded).
- 3 anchovy fillets
- LOTS of olive oil
- Salt & Pepper
- A large non-stick saucepan, preferably a le creuset-type slow cooker.
Start by cutting the broccoli into florets, cutting the big ones in half.
