Broccoli pesto with potato and egg is an absolutely magical union. This dish is a healthy take on your standard potato salad, and is all the inspiration I need to whip up a batch of broccoli pesto.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1kg baby potatoes, (if some are a bit larger than the rest, cut in half)
6 eggs
40g pine nuts
few handfuls chicory or rocket leaves
large handful basil leaves

Dressing

Quantity Ingredient
125g Broccoli pesto
2 lemons, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil

Method

  1. Place the unpeeled potatoes into a stockpot and cover with water. Add a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20–30 minutes until completely tender but not falling apart. The time will vary depending on the size and variety of the potatoes. Insert a knife or skewer to check if done. When ready, drain well and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, add the eggs to a saucepan with enough cold water to cover them completely. Bring to the boil, then turn off the heat and let sit covered for 7 minutes. Drain, then peel under cold running water. Cut the boiled eggs into quarters and set aside.
  3. Dry toast the pine nuts in a frying pan over high heat. Shake the pan regularly and remove from the heat as soon as the nuts take on some colour. Set aside.
  4. To make the dressing, whisk the ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.
  5. Toss the dressing through the warm potatoes. Taste, and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Add the boiled eggs and chicory or rocket and gently toss again. Scatter the basil leaves and pine nuts over the top and serve warm or at room temperature.
  6. The salad is best eaten the day it is made.
