The humble bean does not get the attention it deserves – in this quick recipe, it is the star!
Chef’s tips: As with most food it’s all in the presentation. Blended beans don’t always look the most attractive thing. Use your skills as a chef to dress the pate. Slices of cucumber, baby tomatoes etc. will add a splash of colour. This recipe uses borlotti beans but just about any will work well. Always rinse and drain thoroughly, though.
