  1. Shave three medium carrots lengthways into long strips using a vegetable peeler.
  2. Steam or boil the Tenderstem® broccoli for about two minutes until almost tender, then add the carrot strips for a minute.
  3. Whilst the vegetables are cooking, add 2 tablespoons olive oil to a small frying pan and gently fry two tablespoons of mustard seeds until they start to pop.
  4. Once they start to pop add a heaped teaspoon each of garam masala and ground cumin. Give it a quick shake to mix then tip into a small clean bowl before the spices start to burn.
  5. Squeeze over the juice of a lemon and a grind of salt and pepper.
  6. Pour the dressing over the Tenderstem® and carrots and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle generously with chopped coriander and serve immediately.
