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.

    Unfortunately, there was no sumac, but it was still a hit with us and our guests. Since there was still persimmon left, we made it again the very next day. "All for us alone 🙂 ". Tomorrow again with guests, but this time with sumac.

    I am so glad I came across your page 🙂
    I only wanted to google a bean salad and now I'm blown away by Lebanese cuisine. I made the salad yesterday for the barbecue, a dream and sooo quick to prepare. It went down really well. And then I even found sumac in our really small town :-))) We have a shop, the owner is from Pakistan and he can get me all the spices I need. I will definitely try everything here. Thanks, for the great recipes 🙂

  3. Why do all the comments mention sumac? It's not even mentioned in the recipe.

    1. Hello Jessica,
      that's right. The comment got lost in the wrong recipe and was actually meant for the persimmon mozzarella salad. 🙂

      Kind regards
