Tenderstem, Bacon & Egg Brunch Salad

Serves: 2

You will need

1 teaspoon olive oil
100g smoked lardons
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons white wine vinegar
4 teaspoons olive oil
Salt & pepper
2 free-range eggs
200g Tenderstem broccoli
A handful of salad leaves
Parmesan shavings


1. Put a pan of water on to boil. Get a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add a drop of olive oil. Add the lardons and fry for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp.

2. Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking together the mustard, vinegar, and olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside. To the pan of now boiling water, carefully drop in the eggs and boil for 4 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and put in a bowl of cold water.

3. Add a pinch of salt to the same pan and simmer the broccoli for 2 minutes until tender. Meanwhile carefully peel the eggs.

4. Drain the broccoli well and arrange on a plate. Scatter over the lardons, and top with the eggs, artfully cutting in half if you like. Finish with salad leaves, parmesan, and the dressing.
