1. Heat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C/Gas 6. Trim the dry ends from the purple sprouting broccoli. Cut any thicker stalks in half (no need to remove the leaves). Pop the broccoli on a baking tray.
2. Peel and finely grate the garlic. Whisk it with the balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper.
3. Pour the balsamic mixture over the broccoli and toss to coat the broccoli in the dressing.
4. Slide the baking tray into the oven and roast the broccoli for 10 mins. Scatter the pine nuts over the brocccoli and roast for a further 5 mins. The broccoli stalks should be tender and the florets slightly charred.
5. Serve the purple sprouting broccoli on a platter with any balsamic dressing from the baking tray drizzled over.
