Spring has definitely sprung in Ireland but we’re not picking beans just yet. This recipe works just as well with the frozen variety.
Broad Beans with Bacon – serves 6
- 60g diced bacon (or ham)
- 1kg cooked broad beans
- 2-3 tbsp light béchamel sauce (make a batch and you can freeze the remainder)
- chopped parsley
Cook the bacon in a little butter.
Add the cooked beans, the béchamel sauce, cream and a little chopped parsley. Simmer together for 5 minutes.
