    Can you eat broad beans raw?

    I have just found out that cooked broad beans (one of my fave vegetables) has a very high GI value - bad news for my eating plan. But raw it is fine, similar with cooked carrots against eating them raw.

    Now that's fine as i mainly eat carrot raw anyhow, but broad beans, are they poisonous raw in the ilk of kidney beans?

    I don't *think* they're poisonous, but may give you tummy ache.

    I've got a lovely bruschetta topping recipe in the Jamie's Italy recipe book which is basically raw broad beans, olive oil, garlic, lemon and parmesan whizzed in a blender. Also the addition of pine nuts or some other nuts to this would give you some sort of pesto.

    It was actually very tasty!
