Charred little gems with tahini yogurt sauce

Add something a little different to your Easter table with these charred little gems in a rich tahini sauce, made with just 4 ingredients. Serve as a side dish or an easy starter. Try doubling the quantity of the sauce to drizzle over your lamb - delicious!

  1. Whisk the tahini and yogurt with 3-4 tbsp water until silky smooth and pourable. Set aside.
  2. Toss the Little Gems with the oil and some seasoning in a bowl. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat until smoking hot, then griddle the lettuce, in batches, for 2-3 mins, turning occasionally to char all over. Arrange on a platter, drizzle over the tahini yogurt to serve.

Tip: To make this vegan, swap the yogurt for a dairy-free alternative and the butter for 1 tbsp oil.
