We love this versatile, beautiful and delicious plant. We have experimented with some easy, light recipes, this is one of our favorites so far. Enjoy!
1 cup of broad beans
1 cup of broad bean top leaves and shoots
4-5 large bean pods
2 cloves of garlic
Some chopped chives and parsley
Salt and pepper
Boil the beans for about ten minutes, then peal their skins. Blend the beans with the upper leaves and shoots of the beans, as well as the garlic. Mix the finely chopped parsley and chives into the creamy paste, add salt and pepper to taste.
Heat up the oil, and add the bean pods chopped into medium sized pieces, as shown in the video. Fry them on a high heat for about 3-4 minutes. Add a bit of salt towards the end.
