  1. Prepare the poppy seeds for the dressing by lightly toasting in a dry frying pan over a moderate heat, being careful not to let them burn. When aromatic, transfer to a pestle and mortar and lightly crush.

  2. Add the crushed poppy seeds to a bowl with the chopped olives, sliced black garlic, pomegranate molasses, vinegar and oil. Mix together until thoroughly combined, forming a thick dressing. Season to taste if required and set aside until ready to serve.

  3. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the Tenderstem® broccoli for 3–4 minutes until tender, but still with some bite. Alternatively, place the Tenderstem® broccoli in a steamer for the same amount of time.

  4. Drain the Tenderstem® broccoli and mix with the endive leaves. Divide between serving plates then spoon over the thick olive dressing. Finish with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle over the chopped roasted hazelnuts to serve.

  5. Enjoy!
