  1. Add the garlic to the food processor and blitz, then add the basil, parsley and mint leaves, and blitz. Next add the gherkins, anchovies, Dijon mustard and the capers and blitz again. Lastly add the olive oil and the red wine vinegar and blitz until smooth. Blitz less is you want some more texture.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan until very hot. Toss your Tenderstem® in 1 tbsp of rapeseed oil until lightly covered. Then add the Tenderstem® to your griddle pan and cook on each side for about 2 minutes until cooked with charred marks.
  3. While hot, toss the Tenderstem® in a few tablespoons of salsa verde. Best served alongside roast lamb.
