Al Shami’s Broad Beans

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.
