For a quick and easy lunch or light dinner, this delicious roasted broccoli on toast with butter bean hummus recipe ticks all the right boxes. Topped with juicy tomatoes, a creamy green tahini dressing and some toasted hazelnuts. Heaven!
The butter bean hummus is slightly thicker than conventional hummus so that it holds better on top of the bread.
The green tahini dressing is made with dairy-free yoghurt, lemon juice and tahini blended with fresh parsley and coriander. For a sweet touch, I added some maple syrup.
How to make this roasted broccoli on toast
Here I chose to simply roast the broccoli under the grill with a drizzle of olive oil on top. I used some tender stem broccoli but when in season you can swap it for some purple sprouting broccoli. The stems of purple sprouting broccoli will be slightly thicker, so blanch it for 3 minutes first before putting the broccoli under the grill.
Once the broccoli has been under the grill for 3mins you can add the tomatoes and grill together for a further 3-4mins. Just watch closely so that the broccoli does not burn.
