Broad bean bruschetta with tahini miso spread

I absolutely love fresh broad beans when they’re in season. No, I don’t particularly enjoy double podding them, but sometimes it’s worth going through that trouble for a special, seasonal breakfast.

Last time I was at the farmers market I literally said ‘I’ll take all your broad beans, thanks’. That was about 2 kgs worth of beans in the pod and that’s how much I love them 🙂

The combination of creamy sweet broad beans with smooth and salty tahini spread and feta, plus a squeeze of lemon is just about a perfectly matched combination of flavors.
