    Anybody got any ideas for broad beans? I was making a pea and broad bean salad so ordered some with my delivery... didnt know one pack of broad beans was going to fill almost an entire carrier bag... :confused:

    In fact everything came ina giant bag, the herbs, the veggies, the lot. Its like the Mystery of the Exploding Fridge:

    I can't get the beans and peas in it so got to eat them up :(

    This time my order came with free Raspberry Liqueur! :

    Can i steal your fridge please?? And all your shopping. I love broad beans, chambard and chipotle paste. Where are you shopping to get free liquers?? I need to change my supermarket obviously :0

    For the broad beans they are nice with pasta - I make a broad bean, spinach and stilton pasta that is very tasty. They are also really nice with feta and could be added to a greek salad or some cous cous. There was a recipe in the slimming world magazine a while ago for a pomegranate and broad bean pilau rice which looked nice (minus the pomegranate in my case - I HATE the idea of fruit with savoury things).

    I luuuurve broad beans ommmmmm. [​IMG] Theyve all gone! All in my tummy yum yum. Couldnt believe it, I podded nearly a whole carrier bag of them and got 200g out of it! Unbelievable, massive pods, about 10-12" long and an inch wide with about 2 beans in each, rubbish :( 200g, made a salad for two of us and now theyve all gone.

    Still got half the peas left tho, mmmmm freshly podded peas, so Ill snack on them tomorrow :)

    Ive never had Chambard before, it's good then is it? thought Id try it this w/e on my SW "day off" (ahem :D ) on Saturday. I got it free with a delivery from Ocado. Ive only used them once before, and only cos they were offering something free that time as well, heh :D Yeah, got free delivery and a bottle of Chambard. They are bl**dy expensive but once a while is OK if they give me freebies :)

    Never had chipotle paste either but Im addicted to jalapenos and Ive found 2 recipes I want to make that ask for it so thought Id get some and Ocado was the only place I could find it.
