Broad Bean Hummus
« on: August 25, 2012, 05:54:40 PM »
Since Broad Beans have been one of the few things that have grown well down the allotment this year, I did a search on what could be done with them, and found this Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipe on the Channel 4 website.


It's absolutely delicious, and much closer to shop bought Hummus (which is made from chick peas) than I was expecting.

It's dead easy too, so do yourself a favour and make some!!!  ;)


INGREDIENTS

400g of shelled (out of their pods) broad beans

1/2 - 1 garlic clove

3 tbsp of olive or rapeseed oil

Juice from 1/2 a lemon

Salt and ground black pepper.


METHOD

Put the bean into a saucepan and cover with water, bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 - 10 minutes.

Drain and set aside to cool, then remove from their skins.

Put the skinned beans into a food processor of blender, along with all the other ingredients.

Blitz to a thick, slightly course paste, adding more oil if it seems a bit thick, or blitz for longer if you prefer a smoother consistency.

When your happy with the texture, taste and adjust with more salt, pepper or lemon juice to your preference, if needed.


Eat immediately, or put it into jars, and store in the fridge.

It'll keep good for a quite a few days....I don't know how long exactly, as it doesn't last that long in my house!!!
