Broccoli and Chestnut Terrine

Recipe Supplied by: Jennipher Marshall-Jenkinson
Serves: 4 People

Serve this lovely seasonal terrine with green salad leaves and new potatoes for lunch or vegetarian dinner, or cold and sliced as part of a buffet or starter.

It also freezes well, so cut slices into single portion sizes, wrap each in cling wrap and freeze for up to a month before consuming. It’s lovely hot or cold, and can also make use of smaller pieces of left over cheese that can be grated together to give a differentflavour.

This recipe uses a900 wattmicrowave oven

Serves 4 - 6

400gbroccoli, cut into small florets

1 medium leek, well washed and roughly chopped

1 x 225gmpack cooked chestnuts

50g cornflakes, roughly crushed **

50g feta cheese, roughly crumbled

1 150ml tub natural yogurt

3 eggs,

a little salt and black pepper to taste

1teaspnfinely grated nutmeg

1tblspnfresh chopped OR 1teaspndried chopped sage

1tblspntoasted sesame seeds

Place the prepared broccoli in a microwave oven-proof dish, rinse under cold running water, drain off water, cover with a well fitting lid or cling wrap and cook on HIGH power for 5 minutes until vegetables are ‘just’ cooked.

While broccoli is cooking, wash and prepare the leek, then place it into anoven-proofdish, cover with a well fitting lid or cling wrap and cook on HIGH power for 3 minutes.

Transfer the cooked broccoli to a chopping board and roughly chop together with the chestnuts, place both into a large mixing bowl with the crushed cornflakes, crumbled feta cheese and cooked leeks.

Beat together the yogurt, eggs, and seasonings to taste, don’t add too much salt, as feta is quite a salty cheese. Stir into the broccoli. Spoon the terrine mixture into a lined1litremicrowave proof loaf dish. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top. Cover dish with cling wrap and cook on MEDIUM-HIGH (600 watts) for 8 10 minutes, until a knife inserted into thecentrecomes out clean and the top feels firm and set.
