Habas Con Jamon

This is a delicious dish best made with fresh broad beans and mountain-cured Serrano ham. It works best with large spring onions or scallions, which have a gentler flavour than normal onions. It is definitely one of my favourites.


  • 2 kg broad beans, podded
  • 100g mountain-cured Serrano ham, chopped
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • olive oil
  • salt


First, heat the oil in a frying pan and then add the chopped onion and garlic. Fry gently until soft and then add the ham and fry for another 5 minutes. Add the broad beans and stir-fry for another couple of minutes. Cover the frying pan and turn the heat down very low. Cook on a low heat until the beans are soft (add a little water if necessary). Season with salt.
