DIRECTIONS

  • Remove beans from pods.
  • Put into pot of boiling water, return to the boil & cook until tender (approx 8-10 mins for fresh, 3-5 for frozen from when the water begins boiling again).
  • Drain & run under cold water.
  • Remove the skins (this does not taste as good if you leave them on, so is worth the effort).
  • Put the beans, lemon juice & salt to taste in a blender/food processor.
  • Pulse until smooth, then add the olive oil, mint & pepper.
  • Pulse again, then put into a serving bowl. If it seems too stiff add a bit more oil.
  • Cover and refrigerate until used (remove from the fridge approx 1/2 an hour before serving to remove the chill).
