The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
When we started allotmenteering we really wanted to grow favourite vegetables.
And this year we also wanted to be better at creating more ingredients for meals. The idea being that we could provide more of each dish.
I’m also very fortunate that my masterchef is creative in the kitchen!
So here’s the latest broad bean invention.
From the garden:
Finely chopped Chilli
Finely chopped Garlic
From the pantry
Pesto (yes, shortly the pesto will be home made too)
Cheese if you need it!
What we did:
Cook the pasta in boiling water
Bring the broad beans to the boil in a small quantity of water for 3 to 4 minutes
Then sauté the cooked beans in butter or olive oil according to your preference for two minutes.
Add finely chopped chilli and fresh garlic.
Combine pasta, bean mix and pesto in one pan.
Serve with parings of cheese if you wish.
It was totally delicious, it disappeared quickly! I 💜 broad beans!
