Food from the garden

Hungry? Have a look in the garden. We still get lovely meals from the Broad Beans, Asparagus, Artichokes, etc. These are Peruvian Red Cheek Broad Beans. Absolutely beautiful. Just like babies' cheeks with a pink blush. Pick them young (as with all broad beans) and they are tender and delicious.
Here's our Broad Bean and Asparagus Salad. I cheated and threw in some red capsicum. Just for colour. Tons of herbs, a freshly plucked lemon (for the dressing), EVO.

I just love the look of the Peruvian pink cheeks and the salad is lovely on the eye as well I can imagine in the tummy
