Purple Sprouting Broccoli with Mint

Purple sprouting broccoli and mint

I’m so pleased that the beautiful purple sprouting broccoli is in season. I love this delicate spring vegetable which brings promises of the brighter, warmer days that you know are just around the corner when it makes its appearance.

I wanted to try something a little different with the bunch of purple sprouting broccoli I picked up yesterday so I thought I’d try teaming it with mint, which is also in season now. I cooked it in simmering water for a few minutes along with a sprig of mint, just as you would new potatoes. The mint worked really well and gave the broccoli a lovely little tingle.

Scott (my ‘In the Bag’ partner) and I like purple sprouting broccoli so much that we’ve stuffed March’s bag full of it. Head over to Scott’s blog, Real Epicurean, to join in the fun.
