I believe this comes from Italy, so Mediterranean it is. Easy to make and delicious too.


• 1 tbs olive oil
• 1 red onion
• 1 head of broccoli cur into small florets
• 1 small glass of red wine
• Juice of 1/2 lemon
• 2 tsp of capers
• Salt and pepper
• About 5 slices of mozzerella (the type used for pizza)
• French Compte is also very good


In a large lidded frying pan put the olive oil, spread the chopped onion evenly over the base of the pan. Arrange the broccoli florets (head over stalk) in decreasing circles starting at the edge of the pan and finishing in the middle. Spoon over the capers. Pour in the wine and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Put the lid on the pan, bring to the boil then turn the heat right down and simmer for 15 minutes. Then place the slices of cheese on top of the broccoli and simmer for another 5 minutes.
I would normally serve this on a bed of rice, but it is just as nice without, or you could use quinoa or even try cauliflower rice ! Adding calories accordingly !
