Broad bean and feta bruschetta

After cooking the broad beans, remove the outer skins to reveal the glorious bright green beans inside. It’s certainly worth the effort and can be done outside in the sunshine. They’re fabulous with fresh herbs such as mint, which is also in season during the summer.

    Lovely and fresh. I cheated and used garlic bread slices. Worked a treat! A bit fiddly shelling the beans, but worth it.
