Easy Broad Bean Pesto

If you’ve planted broad beans this year, you’ll soon be overwhelmed with a plethora of little green gems. They take a while to start producing but once those bees get in there and pollinate…Broad bean central!

Podding and shelling will become your new norm and I thought I’d chime in with a recipe* to help distribute the load.

*Bonus: This recipe doesn’t require you to shell the beans so that’s one step less. Yay!broad bean pesto

This recipe contains some of the usual pesto suspects, parmesan, garlic, basil, olive oil. I also added some toasted almonds for texture and a hint of mint.

It’s fresh and vibrant and a great accompaniment to any meals. Try it with pasta, or on bruschetta!
