Broad beans

These wonderful little kidney-shaped beans are at their best in June when they’re just beautiful boiled, buttered and munched with freshly-baked bread. Be as frugal or as fancy as you like.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Delicious eaten raw with lumps of pecorino.
  • Try lightly cooking them and serving in a salad of chopped soft herbs like chervil, parsley, mint and tarragon and a white wine vinegar and olive oil dressing.
