800g trimmed broccoli, divided into florets
25g butter
50g parmesan (or vegetarian alternative), grated, plus extra to serve


Drop the broccoli florets into a pan of boiling salted water. Bring back to the boil, cook for 3-5 mins until tender, then drain.

Melt the butter in a large frying pan and, once sizzling, add the broccoli. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle in as much of the parmesan as you want to use. Gently stir the florets in the cheese and butter. Scatter on a little more grated parmesan to serve.
