Notes about this recipe

  • veronicafrance on May 13, 2012

    This was a bit bland, but would be fine as an accompaniment to spicier dishes, as Nadine Abensur suggests. Don't stint on the coriander. Some grated lemon zest would be good too. I jazzed it up with a glug of fino sherry added at the end. Oh, and I added some bacon, just because I had some to use up, and broad beans without bacon just didn't seem right.
