A colourful lentil salad packed with nutritious vegetables and tossed with a zingy chilli lime dressing.
1. Place lentils in a saucepan and cover with plenty of water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Cut broccoli into small florets and add to simmering water. Half cover with lid and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain and rinse under cold water.

3. Combine lime zest and juice, 1/2 crushed garlic clove, 1/4 tsp chilli flakes (optional), 1/3 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup red wine vinegar and 1/2 tsp honey in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. Peel and halve the eggs. Set aside.
