Pod the beans and put in a steamer.
While the broad beans are steaming slice a rasher of bacon and fry until crispy.
Take off the heat and drain off any exccess fat. Add the steamed beans and chopped herbs. Dress with a little oil and some good quality vinegar and serve.
I usually use mint in this recipe, but thought I would give parsley and chervil a try - I think the mint works slightly better (see older post).
