and Pine Nuts with Lemon Sauce
and Gina Fraser - Perth, Western Australia
Place pine nuts on a tray under a medium hot griller and shake tray
until nuts are just browned.
- 1 bunch broccoli, trimmed and cut into florets
- 25g vegetable margarine
- 100ml vegetable stock
- 2 level tsp cornflour
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 40g toasted pine nuts
This happens very quickly so do not leave for long.
Steam, blanch or microwave broccoli until bright green, tender, but
Heat margarine and stock in a sauté pan and bring to the boil.
Blend the cornflour into the lemon juice and whisk into the margarine/stock
mixture a little at a time.
Bring back to the boil, whisking well, and simmer for 2 minutes.
The sauce should look smooth and glossy.
Fold in pine nuts.
Arrange broccoli in a heatproof dish, cover with foil and heat in
oven for 10 minutes, or cover with plastic and microwave on high
for 1 minute.
Pour sauce over and wait for the compliments!
