Makes enough for 1 as a main or 2 as an accompaniment

I took inspiration from a BBQ we were at over the weekend where this salad was on the table. It was simple and delicious so I’ve nabbed it for my collection but I added some peas in for extra greenery and protein. As all the veg are raw, they are crunchy and packed with nutrients, it also means it takes about 10 minutes in total. I would literally eat a whole bowl of this but equally if you are cooking for two it’s delicious with a piece of grilled fish.

130g broccoli (half a small bunch)
80g fresh peas
40g peanuts
80g crème fraiche (reduced fat)
40g grated carrot, (1 small)
Zest of half a lemon
Salt & pepper

Roughly chop the broccoli into bite sized pieces
Place a small pan on the hob on low and toast the peanuts. Ensure you keep an eye on them and shake every 30 seconds or they’ll burn. To toast it should only take around 3 minutes in total
Pod the peas (or defrost frozen if you prefer)
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and season with salt and pepper
Lastly stir through the crème fraiche
