  1. Heat the oil in a lidded sauté pan on medium heat. Add the sage leaves and gently fry for 2 minutes then pick out with tongs and set aside on kitchen towel to cool and crisp up.

  2. Add the shallots to the sage-flavoured oil and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until lightly coloured.

  3. Add the Tenderstem® broccoli and 2-3 large peels of lemon rind and cook for a minute, then add 1 tbsp water and cover with the lid to gently cook the broccoli for 3-4 minutes until cooked but still firm to the bite.

  4. Remove the lid, cook off the remaining water and serve with a squeeze of lemon juice, and garnished with the pistachios and crisp sage leaves. Remove the rind before serving if you wish.
