  3. Whisk together the dressing ingredients, adding in an extra squeeze of lemon and set aside.

  4. Heat the olive oil in a griddle pan until searing hot, add the Tenderstem Royale® and griddle until each spear is lightly charred.

  5. Heat the lentils according to pack instructions, mix with the red onion. Top with the watercress leaves, Tenderstem Royale® and soft-boiled quails’ eggs. Spoon over the dressing and enjoy!
