22 Purple Sprouting Broccoli Recipes

Why we love purple sprouting broccoli

This variety is actually even quicker to prepare and cook than standard broccoli. Simply trim the stems and boil or steam for a shorter time – the tender stalks and florets will cook through much more rapidly. It’s deep green leaves with a purple hue look lovely against a creamy sauce or in a colourful salad. As with other types of broccoli, it works well in pasta dishes and spicy stir-fries.

Health benefits of purple sprouting broccoli

Broccoli is rich in sulphur, meaning it’s good for your gut health and, as a result, may improve your immunity. A key component of broccoli is a phytochemical known as sulforaphane, which gives it that slightly bitter taste. Studies have shown sulforaphane may help reduce the risk of certain cancers.
