Chargrilled broccoli with chilli and garlic

This has got to be one of my all time favorite Ottolenghi recipes!
Since I`m all into being healthy,toning up and losing weight i`m all onto brocolli these days.
Here is how to make it:


2 heads of broccoli, separated into florets

115ml olive oil

4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

2 mild red chillies thinly sliced

sea salt and black pepper

toasted flaked almonds or thin slices of lemon with skin

Fill a large saucepan with water and bring it to boil. Throw in the broccoli and blanch for two minutes only. Dont over cook it. Using a large slotted spoon transfer the broccoli to a bowl full of ice water. Drain in a colander and allow to dry completely. It is important that the broccoli isnt wet at all. In a mixing bowl, toss the broccoli with 45ml of the olive oil and a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Place a ridged griddle pan over high heat and leave it there for five minutes so that it becomes very hot. Grill the broccoli in several batches. The florets must not be cramped.

While grilling the broccoli, place the rest of the oil in a small saucepan with the garlic and chillies. cook them over medium heat until the garlic begins to brown. Pour the oil, garlic and chilli over the broccoli and adjust the seasoning.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Garnish with almonds of lemons.
