Goes Best With
Crushed minted Peas and Broad Beans
80g fresh peas
80g podded young broad beans
1/2 tbsp fresh mint, chopped
1/2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped

- Blanch the peas in a pan of boiling water. After 3 mins add the podded beans and cook for a further 1 min. Drain both in a colander and transfer to a bowl of iced water and leave for 5 minutes. Drain well again and pop the broad beans from their skins. Crush the peas and beans together with the back of a fork.
