  • 160 g of broccoli stalks
  • 2 tbs low fat cremé fraiche
  • zest of half a lemon
  • sprigs of tender new growth thyme

Broccoli Dip Directions

  1. 1. Cut the broccoli stalks into rough chunks and cook until tender, either by steaming or microwave on High along with a couple of tablespoons of water.
  2. 2. Using either a hand blender or liquidiser, blitz the broccoli for a few seconds. Add the cremé fraiche, lemon zest, thyme and chilli, if using and blitz again until smooth. Decant into a serving dish and chill before serving.
  3. Hint: The hand blender or liquidiser will give a finer consistency than by using a food processor.
