Broad Bean and Fetta Dip

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by ImPat

From Recipe+ - saving here as we did have a bumper crop of broad beans and were about ready to harvest when the fence blew down and flattened the lot. This recipe does call for frozen broad beans and I was planning in freezing them.

Very tasty. I haven't seen any jarred feta as described so I used a firm Boursin that crumbles nicely and added a bit of olive oil and some Greek oregano, basil, fresh coriander and black pepper. Served with sliced firm veggies (the usual suspects) and enjoyed a pleasing summer supper with some iced tea. Thank you Pat
