Broad bean, avocado and herb dip

  • Handful of broad beans in shell (or you can use frozen ones)
  • 1/4 cup smooth ricotta
  • 1/4 cup finely grated parmesan
  • 1 avocado, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped herb of your choice (parsley, mint or coriander work well)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  1. Remove your broad beans from the outer pod.
  2. Place in a pan of boiling water and boil for 2 minutes. Drain and immediately place in very cold, or iced, water to stop the cooking process.
  3. Gently squeeze each bean until the inner section pops out from its skin.
  4. Place broad beans, ricotta, parmesan, avocado, herb, lemon juice and salt in a food processor or blender. Season with pepper. Process until smooth and combined. Serve.
