1
To begin, bring a large pan of water to the boil and add the fridge-cold eggs (boiling straight from the fridge will make them easier to peel). Boil for 3 1/2 minutes, then place in a bowl of iced water to cool quickly. Peel the eggs and set aside
  • 8 eggs, chilled in the fridge
2
Set up a bowl of iced water. Blanch the broad beans in salted boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain and chill in the iced water. Remove the beans from their skins and set aside
3
Place the broad beans, peas, watercress, cheese, parsley and seasoning into the Vitamix container and blend together until a chunky paste is formed. Add a little more cheese and a dash of oil and blend a little further if you're having trouble binding the mixture
4
Divide the mixture into 4 balls and place on four squares of cling film. Flatten out to create a thin layer and place an egg on top of each. Bring the corners of the cling film up and over the egg to ensure it's fully encased in the mixture, then tie the excess cling film into a knot to seal. Bring a pan of water to the boil topped with a steamer basket lined with parchment peper. Steam the eggs wrapped in cling film for 5 minutes
5
Just before serving, dress the watercress and shallot rings in the oil and vinegar
6
Carefully remove the eggs from the cling film and roll in the sesame seeds to coat. Place on plates with the salad and tamarind chutney and serve immediately
