Also known as fava beans, broad beans are a member of the legume family. High in protein, energy and fibre.
Broad beans should be podded to eat, unless the beans are very young. Boil in a pan for 3-5 minutes, drain and empty into cold water. Slit the pods to remove the beans inside.
A great addition to a salad or mash with garlic.
Enjoy with a nice bottle of chianti!!
Wash before eating.
* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
