Simple Broad Beans


Broad beans this fresh and young are beautiful prepared simply.  When they are young, I cook them in a hot wok. Ingredients 350-400 grams broad beans 1 large knob of butter 2 shallots or 1 small red onion 1-2 large cloves garlic minced salt and pepper

Method 1. Shell broad beans and set aside. 2. Heat the wok on high heat.  Add butter, shallots and garlic and stir while cooking for about a minute. 3. Add broad beans tossing them in the butter.  Keep tossing occasionally and cook for one minute after they sweat (about 3 minutes in total) or until tender and cooked through. 4. Remove from heat and generously salt and coat with freshly ground black or white pepper. 5. Optional - We like to add the broad bean tops for the last minute to make an attractive side dish. Add broad bean tops and toss to coat with the mix. Cook until wilted and the stems are tender.
