It’s officially summer when you are able to harvest your own peas from the veggie patch. My in-laws have been growing some lovely broadbeans so I’ve got access to home-grown Peas and Broadbeans, so looking for a good recipe was necessary. I found this one in Jamie Oliver’s Italy book, but I have adapted it to suit our taste.
Pour hot boiling water on the broadbeans in a bowl and leave it for about 3-4 minutes.
Strain the beans and then wizz all of the above ingredients together in a food processor or blender until they look a bit like mushy peas.
It’s ready! Spread this on a sourdough toast/buckwheat crackers or rye crackers to enjoy the tasty snack. Yummy!
The recipe does about 4 pieces of toast/crackers.
