Ingredients

  • 4 medium free-range eggs
  • 200g tenderstem broccoli, larger spears halved
  • 3 tbsp mixed seeds
  • 1 tbsp honey, plus an extra squeeze
  • 1 tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 250g pouch ready-cooked puy lentils
  • 60g bag baby kale
  • 1 large ripe avocado, sliced
  • A few fresh basil leaves, chopped

 

Method

  1. Put the eggs in a pan of cold water, bring up to a simmer, then cook for 6 minutes (they’ll be done with slightly fudgy yolks). Cool under cold running water, then peel and cut in half.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a second pan with a steamer basket inside, add the broccoli, then steam for 3-4 minutes until still firm to the bite. Drain and refresh under cold running water.
  3. Put the seeds in a small non-stick frying pan and toast over a medium heat for a few minutes. Add 1 tbsp honey along with the tamari and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Put the olive oil, lemon juice and a squeeze of honey in a jam jar with salt and pepper and ½ tsp water, then shake until well combined.
  5. Heat the lentils according to the pack instructions, then mix them in a large bowl with the kale, avocado, broccoli and most of the dressing. Arrange the halved eggs on top, then scatter over the seeds. Drizzle with the remaining dressing, then scatter over a few basil leaves to serve.
