Broad beans cream

For four people:

  • 1 kg of peeled broad beans
  • 150 g of “Caciocavallo Ragusano” cheese
  • 2 potatoes
  • 5 bay leaves
  • a bunch of wild fennel
  • a bunch of basil
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Cook the peeled broad beans in a pot filled with water on low heat along with washed and peeled potatoes, the bay leaves, fennel and basil previously washed, a pinch of pepper and three tablespoons of oil. Salt it and cook it for about 3 hours, mixing gently, until all ingredients are mixed well. 

Let cool and blend it all with an immersion blender. When the "Macco" (cream) reaches a homogeneous consistency, transfer it into a bowl, add a drop of oil and the grated cheese.

Serve warm and, as much as you like, bring with bread.
