I'm a Celebrity's Gino D'Acampo has created this speedy weekday meal using tender Bellaverde broccoli - delicious!


  • 200g bellaverde« broccoli
  • 45ml/3tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 1 medium aubergine, cut into small cubes (about 1cm)
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 (400g) can chopped tomatoes
  • 5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 50g/2oz pitted Kalamata olives
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 25g/1oz freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Gino says: 'Bellaverde is slightly sweeter than other broccoli, so is more appealing to kids'


  1. Heat the oil in a 25cm diameter frying pan, add the onion, aubergines and pepper and sautÚ for 6-8 mins until soft and browned, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, wash the bellaverde« and prepare by trimming the base of the spear and chopping the remaining into 3cm pieces.
  3. Pour the tomatoes in the frying pan with the bellaverde«, basil and olives. Cover the pan with a baking tray or lid and cook, over a medium heat for 4-5 mins or until all the vegetables are tender. Meanwhile, preheat the grill. 
  4. Use a spoon to make four hollows in the tomato mixture and very gently break one egg into each. Recover the pan and cook over a medium heat for 2 mins. Remove the lid, sprinkle over the Parmesan and cook under the grill for 2-3 mins or until the eggs are cooked as you like them. Serve immediately with  warm crusty bread.
