The joy of growing your own vegetables and eating them the day of harvest is something that any foodie will relish in! This recipe comes from just that, a delicious supply of broad beans direct from the garden plot!
We would like to welcome all our readers back to our blog after what has been a wonderful summer of camping, food and eating out for both of us.
This year we have both started growing vegetables in small plots on our gardens. Vegetable growing is new to us both, despite being a keen gardener, Lesley has not previously grown vegetables, this venture is new to us both. Over the summer we have had some success: our pak choi, kohl rabi, cauliflower as well as some disasters: salad and french beans due to a complete lack of heat! Despite all this, we have both been bitten by the veg growing bug.
One real success was broad beans, however as any vegetable grower will know, regardless of how much you cook and eat, there will always be a glut. To that end I started to ponder what to do with all these beans and I came up this recipe for a broad bean dip, perfect for a quick lunch or an ideal dinner starter.
