Nigel Slater Broad Bean And Dill Hummus

Nigel Slater Broad Bean And Dill Hummus

The local greengrocers have started stocking Gower broad beans and after last years failures to make an interesting salad out of them, I went in search of another recipe.

The following is an minor adaptation of a Nigel Slater recipe from his The Kitchen Diaries: A Year in the Kitchen book and I've reduced the amounts needed.

  • 800g broad beans in their pods
  • 2 tablespoons of good olive oil
  • juice of half a small lemon
  • Small handful of dill
1 .Pod the beans and drop into boiling water for 8 mins
2. Drain and then pulse to a coarse puree in a food processor
3. Add olive oil, lemon juice and the dill
4. Pulse until you it is almost smooth
