Broccoli Salad with Potatoes, Peas and Herbs
- 3 cups (350g) new potatoes
- 3 cups (250g) Tenderstem broccoli (broccolini)
- 1/2 cup (50g) raw snap peas
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
- 3 handfuls spinach leaves
- 3 tbsp sprouted lentils (optional)
- Part boil the potatoes for 7 mins or until just tender (halve any larger new potatoes first). Drain well, rinse under cold water to cool enough to handle then thread onto skewers.
- Heat a griddle pan or barbecue. Mix the oil, garlic and herbs in a small bowl, then brush it all over the potatoes.
Grill for a few minutes until lightly charred.
- Meanwhile, bring a medium pan of water to the boil, add the Tenderstem/broccolini and cook for 1 minute. Drain, rinse under cold water to stop them cooking further.
- In a large serving bowl, add the spinach, then top with the broccolini, grilled potatoes (and any remaining herby sauce), snap peas and sprouted lentils (if using).
