I know, I know – broadbeans sound like such a spring vegetable! But if you’ve got a bag o’ em in the freezer, and you’ve got plenty of lemon and chilli floating around then you’ve got a pretty gnarly cool-weather dish if you are, in fact, in cool weather.
If you are not, play on!
I do tend to find I put chilli in most dishes when the wind is cold and the skies are grey. When people asked me how I was going to survive the Melbourne winter I joked that I was just going to drink a lot of whiskey and hope that I warmed up from the inside out. I guess I can make that joke with chilli. Now if someone could just point me in the right direction of a chilli whiskey…
If you ain’t got broad beans, then throw whatever else it is you have in the freezer that’s green – spinach, broccoli, peas, all will be good. Be generous with both zest and cheese*.
