Method

  1. Cook the broad beans in boiling water for 2 mins. Drain, refresh under cold water, drain again, then peel from their skins.

  2. Use a masher to roughly crush the beans with the olive oil and lemon juice, then stir through the mint. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Heat a griddle pan, toast the bread on both sides, then rub with the garlic clove. Spoon some of the beans over each slice of bread, scatter over the pecorino and drizzle with more olive oil to serve.

Go easy on the lemon juice - the pecorino really makes the dish!

As an alternative you might want to use frozen peas. Cooke briefly and blend, but do not make it too smooth. Everyone I served this alternative recipe last summer to go with a glass of wine in the garden enjoyed it. The colour of this snack is really stunning! And I believe it looks very tasty and healthy.
