This soup can be whipped up in no time on a cold afternoon as long as you have the ubiquitous Umami organised … so what have you "bean" waiting for? Get it sorted …
Keeping it Simple:
If you prefer smooth (as I do) you may want to either peel your broad beans or blend the soup for a lot longer until the texture is creamy.
Serve this with loads of hot crusty bread. Your kids will never know it's packed with beans and peas!
