  • 4 sweetcorn cobs
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 100g frozen baby broad beans
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and chopped
  • large handful basil, chopped
  • large handful mint, chopped
  • 1-2 tsp sherry vinegar


  1. Use a knife to cut down the length of the sweetcorn to remove the kernels. Heat the oil in a large lidded pan. Cook the kernels and garlic over a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring all the time.

  2. Add the frozen beans to the pan, cover and cook, stirring every so often, for another 4-5 mins or until the beans are cooked through. Turn off the heat and add the chilli, herbs and vinegar. Taste and add seasoning, if you like.
