Easy broad beans with spring onion pesto for quick, protein packed summer lunch box which you can make in no time
I have to admit that I discovered broad beans just recently. In the past, I used to buy and cook only the basic beans, green or yellow ones. Also, I used to cook with canned or frozen beans too. But the older I get the more I appreciate the fresh beans 🙂 Last but not least they are super duper healthy so it would be stupid not to eat them during the summer season.
The nutrition facts of broad beans.
According to Wikipedia, 100g of broad (or fava) beans contain 25g of proteins, 58g of carbohydrates, 1,5g of fat and a lot of fiber. This makes them a perfect food for you if you are on a low-fat diet. They are also packed with iron, magnesium, manganese, calcium, and phosphorus.
