Whole Pan-Roasted Broccoli

Whole Pan-Roasted Broccoli

Well prepared broccoli is succulent, firm and still has its’ natural bright green colour. It can be roasted in the oven or for a quick method, try pan-roasting your broccoli like we do at the temple. You’ll have flavourful broccoli that is gently infused with garlic and basil.


Serving: for 1 person

  • 1 small whole broccoli
  • a handful of basil leaves
  • 1 chilli
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • a pinch of fennel seeds
  • a pinch of rosemary
  • a pinch of thyme
  • a pinch of salt
  • a pinch of black pepper
  • a glass of water (only use ¼)


Cut the chilli and garlic into thin pieces.


Put the stove onto a high heat and add oil. Add the fennel seeds, rosemary, thyme, place the whole broccoli upside down into the pan and then add water. Let the broccoli pan-roast on its head for 2 minutes. Add salt, black pepper, garlic, chilli and turn the broccoli the right way up. Add half of the basil leaves and let it pan-roast for another 2 minutes. Add more water, the rest of the basil leaves and pan-roast for an additional minute.

Serve and enjoy!
