Description

Liven up your dinner table with this light and summery side dish. So inviting, even the kids won’t be able to refuse!


Ingredients

  • 300g frozen broad beans
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 10 mint leaves, chopped
  • salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  1. Cook the broad beans and peas according to the package instructions (approx 4 mins for the beans and 3 mins for the peas).
  2. Drain and run under cold water for a couple of minutes. The broad beans can be eaten in their shells but they taste, and look, much nicer out of their skin. This is a bit time consuming but believe me it’s worth the effort!
  3. Make the dressing by mixing the olive oil, lemon juice and chopped mint leaves.
  4. Mix the dressing with the beans and peas and season with salt and pepper.

Notes

This dish can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. However I would recommend to eat within 6 hours of making as the peas and beans begin to lose some of their gorgeous vibrant colour after that.
