Method

 
Preheat oven to 180°C. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a lightly greased baking pan.

Cover with foil and make a little gash in centre with a sharp knife. Bake covered for 25 minutes. Remove foil and cook for a further 5 minutes. Liquid should be absorbed and the cauliflower and broccoli soft but not mushy.

The original recipe suggests baking for 40 minutes – this would be far too long in my oven. Adjust according to your own oven’s quirks.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
