Keyword basil, broccolini, ground beef, lemon, minced beef
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 2 people


  • 2 bunches broccolini or broccoli
  • 450 g minced (ground) beef
  • 1-2 small red chillies – fresh or dried optional
  • 1-2 lemons
  • 1 bunch basil leaves picked


  1. Chop broccolini (or broccoli) into bite sized pieces. And finely chop chilli (if using).

  2. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan or wok. Cook broccolini, stirring until slightly softened. Somewhere between super crunchy and very soft.

  3. Remove veg from the pan. Add a little more oil and cook the meat and chilli, (if using) on a high heat until well browned. Stir often to break up the chunks.

  4. Return the cooked veg to the pan. Warm through for a minute or so. Taste and season with salt, pepper and a squeeze of lemon.

  5. Serve with basil leaves on top and extra lemon halves on the side.
