Broccoli, the much maligned vegetable of children, is a firm favourite for our autumn and winter cooking. The cruciferous vegetable – and its elongated cousin broccolini – is not only packed with nutrients, but also incredibly versatile in the kitchen.

Whether you prefer your broccoli and broccolini roasted, steamed, or sautéed, there are endless possibilities for tasty greens to end up on your plate. From simple stir-fries and broccolini salads to creamy broccoli soups and pasta with broccoli, our favourite brassicas make for great recipes for all occasions.

Here are our best broccoli and broccolini recipes.
