- 1 head broccoli
- 300g Brussels sprouts, trimmed
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 4 rashers rindless bacon, coarsely sliced
- 1/3 cup slivered almonds

Cut broccoli into florets. Cut Brussels sprouts in half. Blanch vegetables by cooking in boiling salted water for three minutes, then drain well.
