This is a great use of super fresh broads as they are practically raw but with a smoky edge. This recipe uses feta cheese but it would also be good with goats cheese or ricotta too.

 

Ingredients

2 handfuls of very fresh broad beans

2 handfuls of frozen peas, defrosted under the hot tap and cooled.

lettuce, chopped

jarred marinated artichokes

radishes, sliced thinly

mint, chopped

lemon

olive oil

feta cheese

 

Method

Get a frying pan on high heat. When it starts to smoke add the beans and peas, shake occasionally and get some charring. When done toss into a bowl with a squeeze of lemon and some olive oil. Get the remaining ingredients ready and toss in the bowl with the beans and peas, sprinkle with extra feta and mint and season.
