  1. Heat grill to high. Spread the pitta triangles out in a shallow baking tray. Toast for a couple of mins to crisp, turning once. Keep a close eye on them otherwise they will burn. Once toasted, remove and place to one side. Next, pop the broad beans in boiling water and cook for 2-3 mins, then drain and remove the bright green pod from the hard outer shell.

  2. In a blender, whizz together the avocado, parsley, yogurt, garlic, lemon juice and zest and seasoning.

  3. Put the remaining ingredients in a bowl, except the cress. Toss together with the avocado and yogurt dressing, then sprinkle over the pitta croutons and cress. Eat straight away.
