  1. Whisk together the ingredients for tahini yoghurt and set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette and season to taste.
  1. Heat a large griddle pan over a medium heat, brush with oil and butter and arrange the Tenderstem® across the base. Sprinkle generously with sea salt and allow to char for approximately 4 minutes either side or until tender when pierced with a fork and each piece has deep char marks. If you would prefer your Tenderstem® even more tender, add a splash of water to the pan and cover with a lid for 1-2 minutes.
  1. Add the hot Tenderstem® to the bowl with the vinaigrette. Roughly chop the herbs and add half to the bowl. Toss the contents until completely coated.
  1. Spread the tahini yoghurt across the base of a serving platter, tumble on the charred Tenderstem® and garnish with the remaining fresh herbs and toasted seeds.
