Here’s the recipe for runner beans and potatoes in a coconut milk curry.


Green Beans with Sichuan Pepper

I started out with this recipe, but the first time I tried to make it I used long green beans and they were not fully cooked. This time I used flat beans and first simmered them in a little water. I’m not keen on pickles of any type, so I used a dried red chilli instead of the pickled red peppers.

I made French beans again. This time, I remembered to add basil and parsley before I ate. Either way, they get eaten up quickly!

I served these beans braised in olive oil with tomatoes as part of a meze. I really liked this dish.

In the summer, there’s nothing like vegetables with a bit of sauce to soak into bread. This is a delicious recipe. I should have added basil leaves and parsley, but I completely forgot them in my haste to enjoy lunch. Here’s the recipe for Jane Scotter’s French bean salad.

I’ve tagged this as green bean although these are obviously yellow beans, because what I mean is that this recipe uses fresh beans, rather than dried ones.

I made this according to a friend’s recipe. It contains shredded cabbage, peas, carrot, green beans, mint and corn, which I added in greater proportion than his recipe called for.
