    • 200g fresh asparagus tips, trimmed
    • 150g fresh or frozen broad beans

    • Halve or slice the potatoes, put in a large pan with the hot stock and simmer, uncovered, for 9-10 mins. Add the asparagus and beans, and cook for 3-4 mins until the potatoes are tender and the stock has reduced to a glaze. Drain the vegetables carefully into a serving bowl.

    Top tip for making New potato and asparagus salad

    If using frozen beans, cook them for just a couple of minutes. Skin the broad beans after they've been cooked; it's a bit tedious, but they do look brighter green and fresher
