Makes about 3 cups

Spring Greens hummus ingredients: 2 cups chopped broccoli florets (use only the heads and cut into small pieces before measuring). 2 cups broad beans, blanched and peeled. 1 ripe avocado, peeled. 2 cloves garlic, crushed. 1 teaspoon ground cumin. pinch of dried chilli flakes. zest of 1 lemon. 2 tablespoons lemon juice. 2 tablespoons olive oil. 2 tablespoons each chopped mint and basil. sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Spring Greens hummus recipe: Put the broccoli in a shallow dish, don't add any water and microwave on high for 1 minute or steam for 2 minutes. Don't boil the broccoli as it absorbs too much water and will lose a lot of flavour Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Season well and if needed, add a little more lemon juice. By then, the Spring Greens hummus is ready
