Our First Harvest Of Broad Beans !

Our First Harvest Of Broad Beans !
This was our first harvest of broad beans, We've never grown them before and DP loves them. I lightly steamed them for about 2 minutes then drizzled a little bit on my home made salad dressing which is made from extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and a little honey . They were delicious and so quick and easy to prepare, I love dishes that taste great with so little effort. I've never cooked them any other way. I read a recipe from another Simple Saver Mimi who makes a broad bean dip, I may try that one if we get excess beans! If any one has any great recipes using broad beans please post them .
Here is another recipe I came across I haven't tried it yet, I don't usually put recipes on my blog that I haven't tried but it sounds nice I may make it this weekend and report back with the results.

Broad Bean Patties
2 cups fresh young broad beans
1/3 cup onions
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup Italian parsley
1/3 cup fresh coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
pinch hot chili flakes
1 tsp sea salt
oil for shallow frying
Just process all ingredients together,
make patties and shallow fry.
