This is a delicious alternative to mashed potato and a great way to enjoy more green veg!
500g broad beans (weight including the tough outer skin which is removed later), if frozen, defrost
2 cups frozen peas, defrosted
1 large potato
1½ cups reduced salt chicken or vegetable stock
50g grated parmesan
Handful mint leaves, finely chopped
How to make:
Put the broad beans into a pan of boiling water (without adding salt) then boil for 1 minute drain then rinse under cold water.
Drain the beans and then remove the tough outer skin and discard it. Put to one side.
Meanwhile put potato into hot stock in a pan & boil for 10 mins until tender, then add the broad beans and peas and warm through.
Take pan off the heat and mash everything together (I used my Kenwood Triblade masher attachment)
Stir through mint and most of the parmesan, season to taste.
Sprinkle the remaining parmesan on before serving.
