There was an abundance of broad beans in my house this year!!! I actually really like them, they are great in salads with a bit of lemon, olive oil, mixed herbs and of course chilli flakes! They have a perfect marriage with feta complete yumminess! I thought why don’t I combine these two partners to make an amazing little baby children!

I made this recipe up myself, I like having snacks even though they can be unhealthy, as these have broad beans in them I thought they are not that unhealthy right?

  1. 1. Cook the broad beans for about 8-10 mins until tender. Leave to cool.
  2. 2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to a food processor as well as the broad beans. Process to a fine but slightly chunky texture, enough to make little patties test making one. (if the patties don't hold you may have to reprocess it again).
  3. 3. Leave in the fridge for 30 mins.
  4. 4. Mould into small patties
  5. 5. Shallow fry for 8-10mins each side on a medium heat.
  6. 6. Serve and enjoy!
  1. You can add as many or little herbs and spices to make it fit to your taste buds.
  2. I would fry one pattie first to check the flavours and then add any flavours if needed.
