Roast Potato Salad with Broad Bean, Pea and Pistachio Cream

This lovely green summery salad has some wonderful flavours–crispy salty roast potatoes with pea and mint. I think it’s a match made in heaven.

Roast potato salad with broad bean, pea and pistachio cream

I think you’re going to love the amazing broad bean, pea and pistachio cream–fresh broad beans and peas, quickly blanched and then blitzed with pistachios and creamy coconut cream–it’s kind of fresh, nutty and creamy all at once.

The salad is brought to life and made super fresh by adding tons of fresh mint, spring onions and some crispy little gem.

Swaps;
I had some lovely organic fresh peas and broad beans in my veg box–but you can definitely use frozen peas and/or broad beans.
You can swap the coconut cream for coconut yogurt, oat cream or a creamy plant-based yogurt.
