Crunchy Green Beans
Serves: 4
  • 200g green beans
  • ½ garlic clove, grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  1. Bring a pan of water to the boil and place in your green beans.
  2. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they have lost their rawness but retain a lovely crunch.
  3. Drain the beans and plunge into a bowl of cold water, or run under a cold tap. Make sure the water stays cold. If the beans sit in warm water they will continue to cook and start to discolour.
  4. Allow them to drain completely.
  5. Meanwhile, make up the dressing by whisking together the olive oil, grated garlic, honey and Dijon mustard with a fork.
  6. Drizzle the dressing over the beans and stir through to coat.
Crunchy green beans is a great side dish for many of our dinner recipes.
