Broad bean recipes

Broad beans complement bacon and pancetta, go well in omelettes and frittatas, make a hearty addition to salads or are great as a side dish.

Broad beans are in season in the UK from around the end of June all the way through to September.

You can keep a supply of frozen broad beans in your freezer, too, if you need your fix over winter.
