With their shiny green and kidney-shaped curves, several vegetables compete with the broad beans in the looks department. It’s true that a little effort is required to manifest as a double show them off. First, you liberate the beans from the outer jackets (a doddle). Then immerse the beans in boiling water for two minutes, refresh them in cold, and drain them. Then, by gently pressing them, you can sneak the seductive green beans from their gray paper skins.

Broad beans are definitely not fast food, but when you bite their silky exterior into their sweetly leguminous floury centre, you will remember why they are worth the bother. They are best when they are relatively small and new; with age they become duller and look more like dry grains. Mint, crispy bacon and pecorino are excellent companions.
