This is a super quick Gordon Ramsay recipe we keep coming back to, mainly because it only has three ingredients and it feels like you’re cheating.
2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
3 tsp fine salt
Bring a large pasta pan of water to the boil with 2 tsp of the salt. Add the broccoli, then the final tsp of salt, and bring back to the boil.
Boil for 3-4 min until the broccoli is just cooked. A knife slips right through. Don’t drain the water away!
Use a slotted spoon to put the broccoli in a blender. Add enough of the cooking water up to half way in the blender, and blend until smooth and velvety. Make sure the lid is on tight!
Pour into bowls, and top with black pepper and olive oil.
