Sweet potatoes

Heat the oil and sauté the garlic and potatoes. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for approx. 20 mins. Roughly mash the potatoes with a fork or a potato masher. Stir in the butter, season the mash with salt.

Romanesco broccoli

To make the crumble, combine the crackers with all the ingredients up to and including pepper, set aside.

Place the Romanesco broccoli on an oven tray lined with baking paper, season with salt, and cover with the 2nd sheet of baking paper.

Bake for approx. 15 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove the baking paper, scatter the crumble over the broccoli and finish cooking for approx. 10 mins.


Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Fry the scallops in batches for approx. 2 mins. on each side, season with salt.
