  1. Put a pan of water on to boil. Get a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat and add 1 tsp of the olive oil.

  2. Add the lardons and fry for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp.

  3. Meanwhile, make the dressing by whisking together the mustard, vinegar, and remaining olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Set aside.

  4. 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.

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

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