Over the past few years I have had more success in growing beans at home. I now mix it up a little bit, growing bush varieties of beans and some that need a trellis. I’m also addicted to smoked almonds – a great little snack just on their own.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
300g green beans, topped and tailed
300g butterbeans, topped and tailed
300g flat green beans, topped and tailed
1 small handful flat-leaf parsley, washed and torn
1 small handful mint, washed and roughly chopped
2 french shallots, thinly sliced

Honey dressing

Quantity Ingredient
90g honey
50g smoked almonds, chopped
100ml olive oil
50ml sherry vinegar

Method

  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add all the beans and cook for 2–3 minutes. Test to see if they’re cooked by scooping one out of the water and biting into it – you’re looking for a little crunch to still be there. Once done, drain the beans in a colander and refresh under cold water until cool. Set aside.
  2. To make the dressing, add the honey and almonds to a little pot and warm gently over a low heat. Add the olive oil and vinegar and take off the heat.
  3. Place the beans in a mixing bowl, add the herbs and shallots, then add the dressing. Mix together, then serve on your desired plates or in shallow bowls.
