    Fab - I have broad beans coming out of my ears. (the only thing we managed to grow in our new allotment!) Plus, my 3 year old loves de-podding the beans. Plus...DP is making wine out of the discarded bean pods....?!

    Very easy and absolutely delicious. Adaptable too - my husband had saucisson sec chopped up with his and loved it.

    This is great if you grow your own and have a glut. A fresh taste of early summer.
