Fantastic side dish - I did use fresh corn and double podded the broad beans. The sherry vinegar gave a lovely back note of flavour and next time I make it I will add 2 chillis (personal taste I know) and lots of herbs. A great low fat dish - 5 stars!

Very nice indeed. Used tinned corn as that's what I had and blanched and 'shelled' the broad beans before adding them, and raspberry wine vinegar as no sherry vinegar in the house. The herbs added a lovely dimension, while the chilli gave a lovely hit! Served them with GF glazed sausages! Plus this is the most excellently named dish!
