Set your oven to 220 degrees, and mix the herbs, garlic and butter in a bowl.

Pop the sweet potato in a steamer basket (or make your own on the stove) until soft.

Add milk, 1 tsp of the herb butter you made, and a little salt. Mash until it’s perfect and pop aside to stay warm.

Toss the broccolini in half the oil, some pepper and salt in a large bowl, coat well and place on a baking sheet to roast until soft (should take 10 minutes).

Meanwhile, pat your streaks dry and season with salt and pepper.

Heat your remaining oil on medium-high heat

Cook the steaks until browned, then pop on the other side of the baking sheet until perfect.

Your dish is ready to serve with a little extra love!
