Broad bean purée/dip/paté

Serves 4-6

Vegetarian, vegan, dairy free, gluten free (depending on bread used)


Broad beans - 200g podded weight
1 onion, sliced
tsp lazy chilli
juice of 1/4 lemon
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, separated
2 tbsp parsley, chopped
salt & pepper

some really good bread, toasted, to serve it on


I didn't change anything from the original recipe's method, so head on over to for directions.

You might like to try some variations:
  • adding mint
  • adding garlic
  • adding nutmeg

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
