20101116 Broccoli Grill
(SOURCE: BBC Good Food Magazine - 101 Meals for Two)
I replaced the wholegrain mustard with freshly ground pepper, as my husband hates mustard and says mustard will give you green hair. The sauce was so heavy and rich. Next time I may use light creme fraiche, use a little more bimi, and replace the cheese with 50g of freshly grated parmesan to make the dish a little lighter.
500g bimi, about 18 stems
200ml creme fraiche
100g grated cheese
freshly ground black pepper
6 slices of ham
1. Preheat the grill to high. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the broccoli and blanch for 2 minutes. Drain and refresh under running cold water.
2. In a small bowl, mix the creme fraiche and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper and half the cheese.
3. Wrap 3 broccoli stems into each slice of ham, then place in a baking dish. Spread the creamy mixture over, sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and grill for 10 minutes until golden and bubbly.
