Broccoli with charred red peppers & feta

Enjoy broccoli with crumbled feta, charred red peppers, red onion and garlic as a vibrant veggie side dish. It’s a perfect partner for our slow roasted lamb


2 red peppers
1 large head of broccoli
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 garlic clove, crushed
100g feta, crumbled

Scorch the red peppers directly over the largest flame on the hob for around 5 mins until they blacken, rotating frequently. If you don’t have a gas hob, you can use a barbecue or an oven grill on the highest setting. Once blackened, put in a container with a lid and leave to cool.

Peel the skin off and remove the seeds and any pith from inside. Slice thickly, reserving any juices. Sieve the juices to remove any seeds.

Cut the broccoli into large florets. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and fry the broccoli for 5 mins, stirring regularly, until starting to to turn golden brown. Add the onion, garlic, some seasoning and 100ml water, then put the lid on the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for a further 5 mins, stirring regularly.

Pour in any remaining pepper juices, mix and spoon onto a serving plate. Place the red pepper slices on top and scatter over the feta.
