broccoli with chilli and garlic

original recipe from "das kochbuch" by ottolenghi, slightly changed



for 2-4 people

500 gr of broccoli

4 garlic cloves, cut in thin slices

2 chillies, cut in thin slices

100 ml of olive oil

a handful of almonds, roasted and

cut in slices

an organic lemon, cut in thin slices

salt & pepper





divide the broccoli in roses and cut the stem in pieces. cook water in a large pan. the pan should be large enough to fit all the broccoli. blanch the broccoli during 2 minutes only. take them out with a skimmer and put them in a pan with cold water. the cooking process should be stopped immediately. let the broccoli drip off and dry completely. it's important that the broccoli is no longer wet. add the broccoli with 50 ml of olive oil and mix generously with salt and pepper in a bowl. preheat the oven on 200°c and put the broccoli and the sliced lemons in the oven during 20 minutes underneath the grill. make sure to mix the lemons underneath the broccoli every 7 minutes. meanwhile heat the rest of the olive oil in a small pan, put in the garlic and the chilli and leave it by a middle temperature until the garlic is soft. pour the oil mixture over the broccoli and mix it well. serve it warm or by room temperature and garnish it with the roasted almonds.
