Beautiful hearty broad bean soup, thickened with potato and flavoured with bacon. A wonderfully unique way to use in-season broad beans. Use frozen if out of season.
I had my doubts about this recipe, but due to having a pack of defrosted broad beans (because we had a new fridge/freezer delivered) I gave it a go - very easy to make, and really, really, tasty. I was very pleasantly surprised, and will definitely make it again. - 11 Feb 2014
As with Jo I had my doubts but a great balance of flavour, leave out salt though as it can be easily over seasoned. I used fresh beans. The recipe quarters well I didn't have enough beans ready in the garden. I used a handful of beans, a small potato and one slice of bacon as the soup was just for me. - 13 Jul 2014
I have just made this soup using fresh broad beans from our allotment! It tastes absolutely beautiful. I will definitely be making this soup again - 25 Jun 2017
