Broad Bean Brushchetta

A simple starter or snack, I spread this on thick grilled sour dough as a substantial snack or spread on thinner grilled bread as a light canape.

Almost no recipe required. You can also use a food processor, just make sure you leave a few broad beans to add to the top for texture and to indicate that it is made from broad beans.

Whether using fresh or frozen broad beans cook for a couple of minutes in boiling water, cool quickly over ice and peel the outer casing off and then mash.

I also add a little extra virgin olive oil in the blending stage to enhance the flavour.

Like peas I have broken my rule for fresh over frozen for broad beans.

    The only problem with frozen broad beans is that they are becoming difficult to find. I don’t like Coles own brand and they don’t seem to stock anything else.
    I love this broad bean pate….delicious.

    Frozen broadbeans, peas, corn, broccoli and cauliflower … they are my life savours some nights. Thanks for this recipe – can’t wait to try it for dinner this week.
