Al Shami’s broad beans from Joy

CSA member Joy’s all-time favourite dish, Al Shami’s broad beans, which you can only do with the really young fresh ones.

  •  300g shelled baby broad beans
  • 2 cloves of garlic sliced finely
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • A bunch of fresh coriander chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper

Flavour the oil by gently heating with the garlic for a minute or so – don’t brown the garlic.  Add the broad beans and sauté for 5 or 6 mins until the beans are al-dente.  Add the coriander and cook covered for 2-3 mins more.  S&P to taste.  Serve with pitta bread.
