Broad Bean Salad

When you’re really hungry, “salad” always sounds so lappish, doesn’t it? When I’m hangry, you can’t come round the corner with a salad anyway. Well – unless it’s part of the garnish on a big juicy burger or something. But there is one exception: Broad bean salad. OMG!

How good that the salad is so simple and quick to make and even makes the hearts of vegans beat faster. So if you come home after a long day and just want to open a can and heat it up on the cooker, the broad bean salad is just the thing for you.

Heat the canned broad beans and quickly mix the garlic, lemon and parsley with a sea of the best olive oil. Then mix in the warm beans and the thing is done.

As you can see, it doesn’t take many ingredients to ignite a firework of flavours. And the best thing is: the broad bean salad is a real all-rounder. Whether as a starter, a quick filling or as a side dish with fish or meat, it’s perfect.
