The Health Boost Tip

This is the easiest quickest green summer dip! Broad beans are not just delicious they are rich in vitamin C and folate and have useful amounts of calcium and protein. This helps make them anti-inflammatory and a great reason to include them in a healthy diet. In some parts of the world they are known as fava beans.
