  1. Start by toasting the almonds in a dry pan on a medium heat – it will take about 2 minutes. Keep your eye on them as they will quickly burn. Remove from the pan and set aside.

  2. Steam the Tenderstem® broccoli for 2 minutes, drain and set aside.

  3. Add the olive oil to a frying pan and sauté the chorizo and garlic until golden and the oils start to release.

  4. Toss the Tenderstem® broccoli into the delicious chorizo and garlic mix. Season to taste with black pepper, sprinkle with the almonds and serve.
