A little scouring on the net brings some wonderful food discoveries. This one comes from Croatia and is a recipe for broccoli in a smoked cheese sauce (though we are sure you can substitute another favorite into the dish). The best part of the recipe: it’s quick and easy to make.

Ingredients (Serves 2):
- 1/2 larger head broccoli (or 1 small)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 100 ml white wine
- 200 ml cream for cooking
- 50 g of smoked cheese
- Salt, pepper
Add salt to a large pot of water and allow to boil. Add chopped broccoli and boil for 4-5 minutes. Remove the broccoli and drain with cold water to retain the green color. In a large saucepan pre-heat oil. Add your broccoli to the pan and cook for two minutes. Add the thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook another 1-2 minutes then add finely chopped garlic and pour in some white win. Simmer until the wine is evaporated. Add heated cream and grated smoked cheese to complete the dish.
Serve with pasta immediately.
