Fabulous food, though I added garlic. This is the sort of dish you can make a big bowl of, and just graze on all day. I will definately do this again, maybe adding leftover meat or chicken, cherry tomatoes, peppers.... Absolutely delicious

How about giving a time for cooking broad beans? I didn't buy them in a packet.
