Tired of basic steamed broccoli? This is a great and easy way you can bring new life to broccoli. This tomato sauce is ridiculously good and so easy to make, personally, I really like eating it straight with a spoon. Serve with chicken breasts for a healthy meal perfect for busy weeknights.

Instructions

1. Blanch broccoli. Place broccoli in a heat proof bowl. Boil water in an electric kettle and pour boiling water over broccoli, I use enough water to cover the florets. Let stand for 5 minutes then drain. Sprinkle broccoli with salt and toss.
2. Cut each tomato in half. Grate tomatoes with the large holes of a box grater (the skins will be conveniently left behind in your hand).
3. Add finely grated garlic, oil and lemon juice to tomatoes. Season with salt to taste.

4. Pour the sauce over broccoli and toss to coat. Serve.
