How to make it

Remove leaves and stalky stems from the broccoli head and cut into florettes.

Steam over hot water until nearly cooked – it must still be crisp.
Put broccoli in a food processor and chop until broken into pieces – do not liquidize Keep separate to cool down.
Mix cottage cheese and yoghurt, add feta and chilli and gently stir to mix.

Taste and add black pepper and salt to taste.

– We love using ‘not to fresh’ rolls for crostini’s. Slice them in 1cm rounds, brush them on both sides with melted butter and oil, mixed with a teaspoon of garlic. Bake in the oven at 180°C until golden brown. Keep an eye on them, as they can burn in a blink.
