Ready in under 30 mins, the broccoli provides iron and is a superfood. Don't be tempted to skimp on the last bit of oil it can be very dry without it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put bread and walnuts in food processor and process to coarse crumbs.
  2. Put spaghetti on to cook by packet instructions, four minutes from the end lob in the broccoli.
  3. Heat 3 tbsp of the oil in a pan and fry the breadcumb mixture until lightly toasted add garlic, parsley and lemon zest.
  4. Drain the pasta and broccoli and toss everything together.
  5. Serve drizzled with the oil and lemon juice.

Delicious - the first meal I cooked after turning vegan.

I didn't have walnuts so used pine nuts instead - as a serving for one 100g of spaghetti was a bit much, about 75g should do it.

This was good, but I think one slice of my homemade bread must be a lot larger than was necessary, and it soaked up all the oil, leaving it a bit dry. Good flavours, though.

Easy, fast and delicious. A pasta dish just after my fancy. I love broccoli, I love walnuts, I love pasta. I like the crunchiness of the breadscrumbs and walnuts. Try it, you will love it.
