    Most salad Nicoise recipes traditionally contain tuna, this is a vegetarian version which is amazing when Jerusalem artichokes come into the shops.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • olive oil, as needed
    • 3 Jerusalem artichokes, peeled and sliced
    • 1/2 small butternut pumpkin, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 450g green beans
    • 225g baby new potatoes
    • 20 black olives, pitted
    • 6 tomatoes, cut into wedges
    • 90g grated Parmesan

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Toss the Jerusalem artichokes and butternut pumpkin in 2 teaspoons olive oil and place in a roasting tin. Roast until browned and tender.
    3. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add the green beans and blanch until tender but still crisp, 2-3 minutes. Remove with tongs and blanch with cold water. Set aside.
    4. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and boil until tender, about 10 minutes.
    5. Heat a ribbed griddle pan until very hot. When the potatoes are cooked, peel and slice them. Rub a little oil on the slices and char-grill.
    6. Just before serving, toss the cooked vegetables, olives and tomatoes with the Parmesan. Arrange on a large plate and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with truffle oil and balsamic. Top with quartered eggs and a sprinkling of lemon juice.
