Tenderstem broccoli with Christmas butter


  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 200g Tenderstem® broccoli

For the Christmas butter

  • 250g salted butter, to room temperature
  • 2 handfuls of finely chopped chestnuts (precooked variety)
  • 2 handfuls of dried cranberries, finely chopped
  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • zest of 2 clementines
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to season


  1. Make the Christmas butter: add all the ingredients (except the Tenderstem® broccoli) to the softened butter and combine really well.
  2. Place the butter mix onto some greaseproof paper and shape into a long sausage with a diameter of about 2 inches.
  3. Roll the greaseproof paper around the butter mix and tightly roll it around the butter to form an even sausage shape.
  4. Once it’s tightly rolled with a couple of layers of greaseproof, twist one end tightly and then repeat at the other end until you have a neat sausage shaped butter mix. Place in the freezer to freeze.
  5. Heat a large frying pan over a medium/high heat and add the rapeseed oil. Once hot, fry the Tenderstem® broccoli for a few minutes on each side until cooked and slightly charred.
  6. While the Tenderstem® broccoli is hot, cut about 1 inch from your Christmas butter roll (about 1/6th of the roll) and place on top of the Tenderstem® broccoli to melt. Toss the Tenderstem® broccoli through the butter and serve.
