PURPLE SPROUTING BROCCOLI

<>

Too pretty to eat? Maybe but it would be a real shame to waste it.

The most colourful member of the cabbage family, the purple shade comes from a phytochemical called sulforaphane (thought to help prevent cancer) and is thought to be good for the heart and bone health.

Go for the young stems (out now) and steam them to get them just right. A squeeze of lemon juice makes them sing. See how Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall brings them to life in these recipes from his Guardian column...
