Curtis Stone's strawberry, elderflower and brioche summer puddings

Ultra-green chopped salad


Sometimes a bowl of greens is just what the doctor ordered. This one is packed full of the good stuff and is delicious to boot. With no cooking required, the bulk of the work is in the chopping.

You'll need

1 broccoli (about 250gm), trimmed and coarsely chopped 1 broccolini, coarsely chopped 100 gm mixed sprouts 50 gm coarsely torn baby kale 2 spring onions, thinly sliced 50 ml extra-virgin olive oil Juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 1 tbsp cider vinegar ½ cup each torn mint, flat-leaf parsley and coriander To serve: tamari-roasted mixed seeds (see note)   Avocado purée avocados, coarsely chopped 80 ml (1/3 cup) well-shaken buttermilk 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp lemon juice 1 garlic clove, finely chopped

Method

  • 01
  • Combine broccoli, broccolini, sprouts, kale and spring onion in a bowl, drizzle with oil, lemon juice and vinegar, and season to taste. Mix well with your hands, massaging the mixture slightly to soften the kale and work the dressing into the vegetables, then set aside while you make the avocado purée.
  • 02
  • For avocado purée, process ingredients in a food processor until very smooth, season to taste and spread in the base of serving bowls.
  • 03
  • Add herbs to vegetable mixture, toss lightly to combine, pile salad on top of avocado purée and serve scattered with roasted seeds.

Note Tamari-roasted seeds are available from select greengrocers in packs that usually contain pepitas, sunflower seeds and sesame seeds. If they're unavailable, substitute roasted nuts.
