APPETIZERS


Baccelli e pecorino
(Young broad beans and pecorino cheese)
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes.
  • Standing time: one hour.
  • 3 kg fresh, young broad beans in their pods.
  • 400g fresh pecorino.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Salt.
  • Black pepper.

 
Shell the beans, place in a salad bowl and dress with the oil, salt and pepper. Chop soft, young pecorino cheese into cubes (mature pecorino would overwhelm the delicate flavour of the broad beans) and add to the salad bowl.
 
Leave aside in a cool place for an hour to let the flavours mingle. Serve with wholemeal bread.
 
This could also be an excellent main ,course, especially if you have already eaten a substantial first course and in the summer time it is also suitable as a quick lunch if you like broad beans and are not satisfied by the small portion of an antipasto.
