Took me a while to find something to cook the other night. I flicked through a few books, realised I’ve still got quite a bit of work to do, and settled on Fresh.
Fresh – The Seasonal Produce Cookbook is a compilation of the best recipes from 6 years of the Seasonal Produce Diary by Allan Campion and Michele Curtis. Lots of tasty non complicated food.
I was thinking something with cauliflower but the first thing that caught my eye was creamy pasta sauce with smoked chicken and broccoli. A very simple recipe that was a crowd pleaser at our house.
40ml olive oil
1 onion, diced
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 smoked chicken breast fillet
200g broccoli, cut into 2cm pieces
2 tbsp chopped parsley
Heat oil in pan and fry onion for 5 mins until softened. Add garlic and cook briefly. Add cream, bring to boil, reduce and simmer for 5 mins. Remove skin from chicken and slice thinly. When cream has reduced by half and chicken and heat through. Add broccoli, turn up heat and cook for 2 mins, stirring often. Check seasoning and add parsley. Toss with cooked linguini.
