    Not a big fan of broad beans, never know what to do with them. Hubby came home with a big bag of them yesterday so decided to try this. Fried my onion in frylight instead of the olive oil as following Slimming World. Added garlic puree, then the carrots etc. Used 2 vegetable stockpots. After blitzing it didn't add the mint or the yogurt and it was still nice and creamy. 1 bowl of this and I am stuffed. Very nice and will be keeping this on file.  -  21 Apr 2014
