Broad bean pate. - using up leftovers
There were some broad beans left over after Sunday dinner so I made some broad bean pate. It was very tasty with a clean, light flavour and a fresh green colour.
Ingredients to make enough for one (because, after all, it was leftovers)
36g cooked broad beans
20g soft cheese
a little bit of garlic puree
half tsp olive oil
half tsp natural yogurt
2 or 3 fresh mint leaves
salt and pepper
a lemon wedge
Using a mini zizzer, put in all the ingredients apart from the salt and pepper and zizz until everything is pureed and nearly smooth. Push the mixture down the sides now and again, if necessary.
Add a bit of seasoning, mix and taste. Adjust if necessary. Chill, covered, in the fridge.
Serve with crackers, oatcakes, pitta bread or similar, with a wedge of lemon
