Creamy Mint and Broad Beans- Frugal Friday

broad bean and mint-cityhippyfarmgirlbroad beans- cityhippyfarmgirlzucchini

I had broad beans and zucchini. Outside, a pot full of mint that was threatening to take over the entire courtyard if I was to let it. Cream that had been sitting on it’s lonesome for far too long and a little fetta that really, really needed sorting out.

What to make, what to make?

  1. It’s very pretty and so vibrantly green! I love the look of this and I think you’re so creative and so good at using up what you have on hand. I love broad beans but yes, double peeling them is a business! xx

  2. Why why why is my mint struggling to survive?! I think it’s something to do with the fact that WA gets so darn hot and our balcony is in full sun for most of the day 😦 Still, I love this combination of flavours. I make something very similar without the cream but with additional lemon zest and chilli flakes, serving it on toasted garlic-rubbed ciabatta. So, so good. I need to try your variation very soon, sounds like a delicious dinner xxx
