Smashed Broad Bean Dip with Mint

Smashed Broad Bean with Mint

This makes a nice dip if you loosen it with a little water, or try spreading onto toasted ciabatta, bruschetta style, and topping with crumbled feta cheese. Also good as part of a flat bread pile up!


  • 2 handfuls cooked broad beans, podded & shelled
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • Juice & zest of quarter lemon
  • 1 small clove garlic, crushed
  • Half tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint leaves


  1. Use a fork to mash the broad beans in a bowl
  2. Mix in the other ingredients
  3. Loosen with water until you get the consistency you would like
