Food Photography Photographer London UK Purple Sprouting Broccoli

Serves 6


a few slices of slightly stale bread
50g grated parmesan
1 tbsp fresh thyme
salt and pepper
750g purple sprouting broccoli
1/2 lemon


Preheat the oven to 150°C. Coarsely grate the bread to make 100g of breadcrumbs. Spread them in a shallow baking tray along with the thyme and bake for around 20 - 30 minutes, stirring gently half way through. When golden brown take them out of the oven, season well and stir through the grated parmesan. Set aside to cool.
Cook the broccoli until just tender and transfer to a warmed serving dish. Squeeze over the juice of half a lemon, season and spoon on the parmesan crumb. Serve immediately.
