Roasted Broccoli halves with Romesco


2 heads of broccoli ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 small or 2 large capsicum ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I small bulb of garlic ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1/2 cup roasted almonds ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 tbsp tomato paste ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Juice of 1/2 a lemon ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line two baking trays. 2. Begin the romesco sauce by roasting the capsicum and bulb of garlic on one tray until slightly charred. Once cooked set aside in a bowl to cool. 3. Whilst the capsicum cools cut the broccoli into neat halves and line on baking tray. Season with salt, pepper, chilli flakes and olive oil. Cook until golden brown or slightly charred depending on desired texture. 4. Once the capsicum has completely cooled, remove the skins and add to a blender. Squeeze out cooked garlic from the skins and add this also. Blend together with almonds, tomato paste, lemon juice, paprika, olive oil, salt and pepper. Blend the romesco to the desired texture. 5. Spoon out the romesco sauce onto a serving platter and lay the broccoli over it. Garnish with chopped roasted almonds.
