  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil. Add the broad beans and cook for 5 mins if frozen, 4 mins if fresh. Add the peas 2 mins before the end of cooking. Simmer, then drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process.​
  2. Pour the cooled beans and peas into a food processor Add the cream cheese, lime zest and juice and coriander. Whizz to a smooth purée and season well.​
  3. Serve the dip topped with extra coriander and a selection of crudités.

Get ahead: Can be made up to two days ahead of time. Keep in the fridge in a container, drizzle over a little olive oil to help seal the surface and cover until ready to serve. If the surface discolours, scrape off and mix the dip well before serving.​
