Cook the broad beans in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, depending on the size, until tender; then drain and leave to cool a little.
Remove the outer shell from any large ones. Mix the lemon juice with the olive oil; season.
Toss the broad bean shoots and beans in a bowl and season. Then shave the cheese into shards and arrange on top and serve.
