Warm broccoli leek and cannellini bean salad with roast lemon

Za'atar is a fragrant middle-eastern spice mix that adds depth and flavour to just a few simple ingredients in this dish.

Serves 3-4

25 minutes

3 cups of broccoli florets

2 leeks, sliced

2 tins of cannellini beans, drained

4 lemon wedges

2 tsps of za’atar

Begin by cooking the broccoli. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Place the broccoli florets on a roasting tray, drizzle with olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and the za’atar. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Heat a little olive oil in a sauté pan, add the leeks and gently fry on a low heat for 5 - 10 minutes until softened ensuring they don’t catch and burn.

Add the beans to the leeks and leave on the heat to warm through gently for 2 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir through the broccoli and serve with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
