These are just a handful of pictures, I managed to snap with my smart phone.
Castle Street is one of the busiest streets in Cardiff and it was a change from seeing it traffic free.The broad beans have been gracing the dinner table the last two weeks. We have been eating them simply, briefly blanched in simmering water, drained and then tossed in a little seasoned extra virgin oil.
Work has been keeping me busy, so I am not going to apologise for using shop brought gnocchi here. There have been days when I have just wanted to put something quick on the table for supper and this was on one of those evenings. I don't even have a recipe to share here either, as I eye-balled the ingredients and tweaked the flavours to taste, namely mint and lemon. I will admit though I did somewhat find shelling the broad beans a little therapeutic and satisfying.
It made for s nice light meal and one we could have sat out and ate in the garden, but no - we plonked ourselves in front of the TV to watch the Channel 4 News.
I am sharing this Simple Broad Bean, Gnocchi and Mint Salad with Eat Your Greens which I co-host with the Veg Hog, this month it is my turn; and Soup, Salad and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen
