Broad Bean Pesto

A perfect way to use up broad beans when in season. If not, frozen broad beans work just as well.


If using fresh broad beans, cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer for 3-5mins until soft. For a really vibrant colour, remove the outer skins from the broad beans when cooked. If using frozen, cover in boiling water and leave for Rolex Replica Watches few mins to thaw.
