Instructions

  1. Cook eggs in a saucepan of boiling water for 8 minutes or until hard-boiled. Drain and rinse under cold water. Peel and cut into quarters.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the broad beans in a small saucepan of boiling water for 1 minute or until bright green and just tender. Drain and refresh in a large bowl of cold water. Drain again.
