  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6.

  2. Place the Tenderstem® broccoli in a roasting tin. Brush with vegetable oil and roast for about 5-10 minutes.

  3. Pulse the almonds in a food processor, then add the garlic, basil and lemon juice and blend to break down. While the blender is blitzing the ingredients, drizzle in the olive oil gradually to make a smooth pesto, scraping down as necessary.

  4. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the cheese.

  5. Divide the pesto between two plates. Place the Tenderstem® broccoli on top of the pesto and serve immediately.
