Broad Bean, Pea and Mint Humous

makes 1 bowl


This pate is so easy to make from vegetables you can keep in the freezer but it’s extra special made from fresh ingredients when they are in season.

1 Cook the beans and peas in boiling water for 3 minutes.

2 Drain the vegetables and place in a food processor along with the garlic, lemon parings, lemon juice, tahini, olive oil and mint.

3 Process the mixture until smooth and creamy adding a little water if the pate is too stiff.

4 Season to taste with salt and pepper, allow to cool and serve.
