Fava Bean Dip

Posted 2015-11-26 by Annalisa Brownfollow
Freshly shelled fava or broad beans cry out spring. Fortunately you can buy the beans snap frozen making them readily available all year round (just remember to peel the soft outer skin).

The naturally sweet and tender beans are perfect in salads or simply eaten as is. A little lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper is all that’s required to dress these little beauties. Puree the lot and you have a wonderfully vibrant, sweet and refreshing dip to dazzle your family and friends with.

This will excite the senses with its vibrant colour and fresh and zingy taste.
