Crispy Roasted Broad Beans

Broad beans are a great source of protein and fibre, as well as vitamins, and these crispy roasted broad beans make the perfect snack, and a tasty alternative to crisps for summer parties. Baked in the oven to crunchy perfection, you can keep it simple or add the spices of your choice such as curry powder, garlic powder, oregano or smoked paprika.
