I’m busy tomorrow, so scheduling in advance. This was gonna be about my roses again, but feeling rather peckish…. And so I couldn’t resist posting this Instagram piccie of one of our fresh broad bean leaf salads.

    I love broad beans, but I’ve never had the leaves of the plant. Learned something new today.
    What’s the dressing on top. The salad looks good 🙂

  3. Are those the same broad leaves that we work to eliminate from our lawns ? I know we eat dandelion greens here. Van


  4. Looks delicious! Now what is that drizzled on the top? Yum ..


  5. Yuuum! Can you use any type of bean plant leaves in salad? My parents always grow runner beans and purple French beans, so I could be raiding the veggie patch next time I’m home 🙂

      Dunno to be honest; might be worth a Google search there…. Most other beans are a pain to grow here, so no experience to quote I’m afraid Mummy Beastie – but let us know sometime 🙂


  6. I only learned snout eating broad bean leaves last year when I read, on a blog, that when you pinch out the tops you can eat them. We had them lightly tossed in butter, just wilted and they were delicious. This year I will try them in salad. 🙂
