adapted slightly from this Taste recipe.


1 large head or 2 small heads of broccoli (approximately 450g)

40ml extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon red chilli flakes

2 large garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoons hazelnuts, chopped

zest of 1/2 lemon

generous pinch of sea salt flakes and black pepper


Pre-heat oven to 210C (convection)/190C (fan-forced).

Slice a bit of the bottom of the broccoli stalk to ensure it is level. Place broccoli on this cut side on a chopping board. Slice broccoli head into 4 thick steaks, ensuring that the stalk is cut into equal parts.

Place broccoli slices cut side down on a lined baking sheet.

Mix olive oil, chilli flakes and garlic in a small bowl. Brush the broccoli steaks (stalk and florets) evenly and generously with the garlic, chilli and oil mix using a pastry brush.

Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and scatter with hazelnuts.

Roast in the pre-heated oven for 18-20 minutes until the edges of the broccoli start to char.

Remove from oven. Sprinkle with black pepper and grated lemon zest. Serve hot.
