Tenderstem speedy gratin

Here's a second recipe with the versatile tenderstem, this can be served as a side dish or a quick lunch dish, may be with crusty bread on the side. Its still made in less than 10 minutes so no excuses, cook from fresh. 

  • pack of tenderstem
  • 100ml Double cream
  • Cheddar cheese or Lancashire Cheese - grated
  • Couple of anchovies in oil, drained 
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Preheat your grill
  • Steam or microwave your tenderstem for 3 minutes until tender
  • Meanwhile heat your double cream and anchovies to boiling point in a pan
  • Drain your tenderstem into a gratin dish, sprinkle with your grated / crumbled cheese and pour over the hot cream
  • Sprinkle with more cheese and slam under the grill until golden and bubbling ( this will take about 5-6 mins)
  • Finish with freshly ground black pepper 
The anchovies melt into the cream and give an deep umami hit to the sauce, delicious served as a side or lunch dish.
