Broccoli ni‡oise

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
450 grams Broccoli; cut into spears
100 grams Onions, very finely chopped
2 tablespoons Olive oil
1 Garlic clove; crushed
2 larges Triangles of puff pastry cooked
40 grams Breadcrumbs fried until golden in sunflower oil
Salt and pepper

This classic French way of cooking vegetables, with onion, garlic and fried breadcrumbs, is quite delectable piled on to triangles of puff pastry and served piping hot.

Steam the broccoli until tender, about 5 minutes. Soften the onions in the oil over a very gentle heat, covered, stirring from time to time until they are soft and sweaty. This will take about 10 minutes.

Stir in the garlic and season with a little salt and pepper. Toss in the cooked broccoli spears and place in a warm dish on the triangles of puff pastry. Serve sprinkled with the fried breadcrumbs.
