Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle
  • tbsp red wine vinegar
  • tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 375g cooked puy lentils (175g raw weight)
  • 6 Waitrose & Partners Free Range Omega 3 Rich Eggs
  • 400g pack asparagus, ends trimmed
  • 1 handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped tarragon

Method

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, mustard, shallot and honey; season. Toss the lentils into the dressing.

  2. Meanwhile, lower the eggs into a pan of boiling water. Simmer for 6½ minutes, then drain and cool in a bowl of cold water. Rinse out the pan, then fill with water and bring to the boil. Add the asparagus and simmer for 2 minutes (thicker spears may need longer while thinner spears less), then drain.

  3. Toss the asparagus and herbs through the lentils, then arrange on a large serving plate. Peel and halve the eggs and place on top, adding a grinding of black pepper and a drizzle more oil, if liked.
