Broad Bean Paté

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

250g of broad bean pods (roughly a handful)
3 cloves of garlic
A drizzle of olive oil
Salt and pepper
Sprig of thyme, chopped

1) Remove the broad beans from their pods and boil them with the garlic cloves for about 15 minutes. Drain and cool.
2) When the beans are cool enough to handle, remove the outer skin of each bean to reveal the brighter green ‘inner bean’!
3) Blend the beans and garlic with a hand blender and add the salt, pepper and thyme.
4) Spread on crackers or bread.
