Gotta love em... not!
At least not usually, not until yesterday. At lunch yesterday, prior to the usual serving of fried flat rice noodle with topping of vegetables, shrimps and thickened sauce (my staple diet), the restaurant served up a bowl of crispy, deep fried, salted broad beans. These things are good!
A quick check on google shows the recipe to be the fairly obvious one... (repeated from http://www.uktvfood.co.uk/index.cfm?uktv=recipes.recipe&iID=513320):
Vegetable oil for deep-frying
500g freshly podded broad beans
1. Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or deep saucepan.
2. Add the broad beans to the hot oil and fry until lightly coloured.
3. Remove the fried beans using a slotted spoon. Drain on kitchen paper. Season with salt.
Gotta to give it a go when I get back home.
