Baked potatoes stuffed with broad beans, rocket (or baby spinach leaves), tangy blue cheese, garlic and basil; and if it takes your fancy, topped with chopped bacon! Adapted from a recipe on some 'Good for You' cards from International Masters: a series focussing on health and nutrition. I am intrigued that 'broad beans' are not in the Zaar Kitchen Dictionary. So, some information about broad beans! From Wikepedia: broad beans have a long tradition of cultivation in Old World agriculture, being among the most ancient plants in cultivation and also among the easiest to grow. It is believed that along with lentils, peas, and chickpeas, they became part of the eastern Mediterranean diet in around 6000 BC or earlier" Reading that you'd expect to find them in the Zaar Dictionary! Not so! The entry in the Cook's Thesaurus reads "fava bean = broad bean = butter bean = Windsor bean = horse bean = English bean = fool = foul = ful = feve = faba = haba = habas". And my recipe card says "Broad beans are a tasty, almost meaty-flavoured bean that are full of nutritional benefits. Broad beans are a great source of protein and fibre and also contain vitamins A and B and zinc, iron and folate. They are available fresh or frozen - if using the fresh beans, you will need to cook them lightly in boiling water to soften them before blending them with the rocket". Obviously, you could use other cheeses instead of the blue cheese. I've made these several times and have used low-fat feta (which I love), and I've also added a handful of pine-nuts in step 3. . Be guided by your taste preferences.
