The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.

Broad bean delight

I love broad beans. The shape, the smell, the colour, the fluffy pods, the taste. 

I want to eat broad beans all day long. 

But failing that we’ve had a successful crop this year. So there’s been plenty. 

I decided to make a yummy spread out of them today. 

I steamed them for a few minutes. 

Then I added some garlic that if lightly fried in oil and a squeeze of lemon juice. 

In the blitzer. 

Straight onto some toast. 

I ate it with some fried round courgette sections. 

It was delicious. 

We had a lot of beans so we’ve frozen some and saved it for later. 

Some people call it houmous. I’m not sure what it should be called but it was delicious.

    I think the dish is called something like foul medame in Egypt. I love it too but didn’t have enough broad beans this year šŸ˜¦

    I get the old broad beans and put them in the microwave and they pop like popcorn and taste a lot like chestnuts, but no one else in the house likes them.

      That sounds intriguing. You can get fried ones from South America. I like them too. The taste could be similar.

    Oh, I love broad bean hummus. We make it with our dried broad beans too, but it’s nicer with the young ones.
