Don’t you just love recipes that have next-to-no ingredients and are quick and easy? Well here is one that is sure to become a favourite.
I saw this way for cooking green beans over on Food 52 and could
almost taste the beans and garlic as I read the recipe, they say it has been adapted from The Foods and Wines of Spain, Knopf, 1982 by
Penelope Casas, so this is my take on their recipe. In Spanish it has the rather lovely name of Judias Verdes con Ajo.
Garlic Green Beans
Not really a recipe, more a way of cooking.
500g fresh green beans
knob of butter
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 Top and tail (trim ends of) beans.
2 Melt butter in a frying pan with a lid. Add beans and cook over a medium-high heat, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes or until beans start to brown.
3 Reduce heat, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or until beans are tender. Add garlic and good grind of salt and toss to combine.
Where did the ingredients for this dish come from:
Garlic, beans: Krismaw Gardens – Hastings; Store cupboard Ingredients: butter, salt.
Note: Many of these producers can be found at the Napier Urban Food Market each Saturday morning and/or at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’
Market each Sunday morning.
Happy cooking and eating.
