string beans

The markets are full of string beans now, and while it is true that one can find them year round, those that ripen naturally in the summer have a more intense richness of flavor.
For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 cup string beans, chopped
  • 2 tbsp pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 /2 cup vegetable broth
  • 5 cloves minced garlic


In a pan fry the chopped garlic in olive oil until golden brown. Add one part of the stock and make it to boil. Add the beans and fry till the water is absorbed fully.

Add the remaining stock and cook until the beans are cooked properly. Cook on low heat for 20 min.

Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve beans hot as a side dish or main course.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
