Pea, Broad Bean and Mint Dip

Involve the children straightaway with shelling the peas and broad beans.  Peas are lovely to eat raw from the pod sprinkled over a salad.  Broad beans are best hulled - boil for 2 minutes, drain and rinse in cold water, peel off the tough grey-green skin to reveal the tender bright green beans inside.

Children love using blenders and liquidisers, just make sure that their hands are dry before touching anything electrical and that they are supervised - remember to PUT THE LID ON tightly before allowing them to press the button, otherwise it will be very, very messy.
