First, peel the broccoli by removing the thicker and leathery part of the stems and the broad, hard leaves.
Rinse them well in cold water and boil them in lightly salted and acidulated water with a little lemon juice: just a few minutes, just long enough to dry them.
Drain them with a slotted spoon and pass them directly into a non-stick pan, season with salt, oil, garlic, chilli and a little more lemon juice if you like, and leave them to flavor over high heat, so as to allow any excess water to dry. .
The Christmas broccoli is ready, let it at least cool before serving.
