Broccoli is a brilliant vegetable but occasionally I find myself at a loss for what to do with it. It’s great with spices, superb with salty soy and oyster sauce and phenomenal with blankets of cheese. So when the kind people from Tenderstem asked if I was interested in taking part in their challenge I gladly accepted; a chance to really think outside the box.
The challenge was to make a meal using the Tenderstem broccoli using less than 10 ingredients in less than 10 minutes. I felt like a Ready Steady Cook contestant. I received a lovely parcel which contained the broccoli as well as a kitchen timer to keep me on track!
You will need (for 2):
1 pack Tenderstem broccoli
Small handful chopped walnuts
50g (ish) blue cheese
Salt and Pepper
Get yourself a steamer and put some boiling water into the pan. Put four stems of broccoli into the top of the steamer and cook for two minutes. While the broccoli cooks, lightly dry toast the walnuts in another pan. When the broccoli is done put it into a blender with the toasted nuts and blue cheese.
