Broadbean CropShare #3: Broadbean pod fries with Korean Gochugang dipping sauce

Posted on Updated on

When you read our guest Broadbean Crop Share blog on Global Gardens Website News Section on 10/06/2020 you can read more about our approach to food and culinary exploration. In the past year Lia’s Kitchen has collected over fifty cook books (second hand and donations) for a shared cookbook library. When exploring what we could do with the fresh broad bean crop given to us by Global Gardens Project we turned for inspiration to these books. It was in Genevieve Taylor’s Charred that we learned how to make a dipping sauce with Korean red pepper flakes. We had to adjust the recipe to our ingredients but we want to fully credit this book for the idea and inspiration. Our Broadbean pod fries inspired by Chef Tom Hunt are gorgeous with that sauce. The only problem is you can actually eat too much and be unable to move. Our crop share recipes have taken a Wasteless approach using the whole plan from leaves, pods and beans. Enjoy!

Broadbean fries with Korean chilli flake dipping sauce

Ingredients

Genevieve’s Korean pepper flakes dipping sauce variation

  • 3 Tbsp. soya sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Korean chilli red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. mirin sauce
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 tsp. caster sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seed toasted and then ground

Method:

  1. Toast the sesame seeds in a non-stick pan and set aside to cool down.
  2. Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl. When the seeds are cooled grind finely in a pestle and mortar and add to the sauce. Let it sit whilst making the Broadbean pod fries.
  3. Place three fingers of vegetable oil in a deep pot and turn the heat up placing a lid on.
  4. Make sure you string the pods well when you are shelling the beans. Use a sharp knife to double string the sides of the split pod again before frying preparation.
  5. Cut each pod shell in 5cm long pieces.
  6. Mix the flour and salt well in a bowl.
  7. Place the milk in another bowl.
  8. Dust the pod shells in flour lightly on both sides. Shake flour off well.
  9. Swiftly dunk the floured pods in the milk and return to the flour.
  10. Dust in flour for the second time.
  11. By this time the oil should be ready for deep frying.
  12. Place the pods in the pot but do not cram.
  13. Reduce the heat and deep dry for around 4 minutes or until golden but not burnt.
  14. Remove with a slotted spoon
  15. Drizzle with the sauce or dip each fry in the sauce with every bite you take!
