Broccoli Cheese

Course Lunch
Keyword broccoli, cheese
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil or butter
  • 2 heads broccoli
  • 2-6 small red chilli peppers eg. serrano optional
  • 4 large handfuls grated cheese


  1. Heat oil in a frying pan or skillet over a medium heat.
  2. Rinse broccoli and don’t dry as the water will help the broccoli to steam. Slice broccoli stems finely then chop the top into bite sized chunks. I just hack through it with a knife but you’re welcome to chop into individual ‘trees’ if you like. Finely chop the chilli (if using).
  3. Add broccoli and chilli to the oil. Cook, covered for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is tender. You’ll need to stir a few times. If it starts to burn add a little water.
  4. Add cheese and stir until well combined and just melted. Serve hot.
