About this recipe: This dish is a family favourite and adored by the younger members of the family during the summer when we have an excess of broad beans in the garden. A refreshing and nourishing alternative to the standard baked beans on toast, this dish is perfect as a light lunch or can be tarted up as a starter for a main meal.

  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 450g fresh broad beans, removed from pods
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 thick slices of bread
  • olive oil, to taste
