It’s peak broad bean season. This week’s recommendation comes from bon viveur Rich, who apart from keeping us highly entertained on Thursdays for box packing is also the foodie brain at the Treehouse Board Game Café. Like Regather, for the café kitchen he buys from local suppliers including The Tower of Bagel (aka the lovely Jonny).
Rich picked this lovely, simple pasta sauce recipe from Nigel Slater, published recently in The Guardian. Perfect for those broad beans from Regather Farm or an allotmenteer. If you don’t have quite enough broad beans, see Nigel’s ‘twist’ tip and add some lightly cooked courgette to the sauce at the end.
