Serves 4: prep time 15 mins: cook time 5 mins


200g Purple Sprouting Broccoli

1 tbsp Rapeseed Oil, plus extra to finish

1 Garlic Clove, peeled and finely chopped

2 Anchovy Fillets

200ml Fresh Double Cream

Salt & Freshly ground Pepper

20g Bread Crumbs


1/Steam the broccoli over boiling water for around five minutes, until tender to the point of a sharp knife.

2/Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and anchovy, and cook gently for a few minutes, crushing the anchovies down into the oil. Add the cream, let it bubble for two to three minutes until thickened and reduced by about a third, then add black pepper to taste, and salt if needed.

3/Put the broccoli into a shallow gratin dish or ovenproof pan, pour over the cream mix, add a trickle of oil and scatter breadcrumbs on top. Grill for a few minutes until golden and bubbling, and serve at once.
