  • Large Baking Tray
  • Small pot (for oil)
  • Fine Cheese Grater
  • Sharp Knife & Chopping Board


  • 14oz / 400g Broccolini
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (see notes)
  • 2 medium cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice, plus more to serve
  • 1/4 cup / 20g freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 tsp Salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper, or to taste
  • pinch of Chilli Flakes (optional)


  • Pre heat oven to 200C/390F. In a small pot combine 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 2 minced cloves of garlic and seasoning to taste.
  • Slice off any particularly thick parts of the stems, then pop on a large baking tray. Pour over oil and give it all a good mix with your hands. Arrange broccolini in a row then pop in the oven for 10-12mins, or until the stalks just begin to soften and little bits of char pick up on the florets.
  • Take out the oven, flip them oven, sprinkle over 1/4cup parmesan and pop back in the oven until the stems are fork tender. Another 5-8mins, depending on the size of your broccolini.
  • Serve with a gentle squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of chilli flakes (optional).



a) Can I make this recipe with regular broccoli? - You sure can! Just be vigilant on timings depending on how small you dice the broccoli florets. 
b) Can I use regular olive oil? - Extra virgin will add more flavour, but if regular olive oil is all you have it'll work just fine!
c) Calories - based on the whole recipe divided by 4.
