Well it is that time of year when we have more broad beans than we know what to do with, If you are like me and you grow a heap of broad beans because they are easy to grow and produce abundant yeilds but find plain old boring boiled broad beans unpalatible maybe try this:

Broad bean egg slice:

Fry up a goodly amount of equal parts roughly chopped brown onion and bacon with a dash of olive oil to get the bacon to start to render. When the bacon and oinions are approaching your desired level of cookedness (if thats not a word it bloody well should be) add the broad beans and saute for 5 min so they take on the lovely bacon and onion flavour in the bacon grease.

In a bowel whisk some eggs (I use 6) and stir through a cup of your favorite grated cheese, season with salt and pepper and then mix in the content of your fry pan (bacon, onion, broad beans and all the bacon grease) and add some torn basil leaves if you have them. Once well mixed you will have a fairly runny mixture with all that oil and eggs so slowly and in small batches sift and mix in self raising flour until the mixture has the consistancy of cake batter.

Pour into a greased tin and bake at 180C for 30min, should be brown on top, do the knife test to make sure it is cooked all the way through.

Better hot but can be eaten cold.

If you are a vegetarian and don't eat bacon or eggs then I feel sorry for you caus bacon and eggs rock :rock:

Do you guys have any good broad bean recipies? Like maybe a broard bean arancini? :poke:

I saw a lovely dip made from braod beans, I think it was on Ready, steady cook or something like that.

Can you dry them for winter soups and stews?

I used this recipe from one of the grocery mobs starting with C...

https://recipes.coles.com.au/recipes/23 ... -arancini/

Takes a bit of time, but totally worth the effort, and if there is any way of making a broad bean taste good, its deep frying with cheese!! :thumb:

we made a really nice broad bean soup once. Took a lot of work though. you have to peel the outer layer of the bean itself. seemed to take hours, but it was a really nice soup

They make good farts, not sure of the recipe though, I would start with following a falafel recipe with lots of garlic then use chilli and yogurt dipping sauce :fart:
