Caramelised Fig & Tenderstem Broccoli Salad

Gooey, warm, caramelised figs – sweet, tangy and a little salty – with tenderstem broccoli, garlic and black pepper croutons, toasted almonds and crumbly vegan cheese on a bed of watercress and drizzled with a balsamic vinegar based dressing.

The figs were roasted in a mix of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, date syrup, thyme and a pinch of salt, they come out perfectly jammy and delicious and the liquid used for roasting doubles as a salad dressing. I made the croutons from some slightly stale sourdough, coated in garlic powder, plenty of black pepper, salt and a good glug of extra virgin olive oil – they are so deliciously savoury and satisfyingly crunchy, a perfect addition to this dish.
