Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the carrots into a large roasting tin, toss with the lemon thyme (if using) and half the oil, then season well. Roast for about 30 mins until golden, turning halfway through cooking.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the green beans in boiling water for 2 mins. Drain, cool under cold running water, then drain again. Mix together the green beans, cannellini or butter beans, remaining oil, onion and feta, then season to taste. Toss with the hot carrots, then tear in the mint just before serving.

Did this for supper tonight (half quantities) as only two of us. Will be doing it next week at my mothers birthday party 91. It was very nice and so simple and I think all invited to the party will enjoy it, age range 18 months to 91.

This was absolutely delicious, all the ingredients complimented each other perfectly. My partner usually complains when we have dishes without meat, but but we both enjoyed it when we ate it. I'll definitely be preparing this again; I love simple dishes like this, with a few ingredients but lots of flavour.

This recipe sounds really tasty, though I haven't tried it yet.

I am concerned about the claim that it provides all 5 of your 5-a-day!
Possibly, if I were to eat the whole salad myself - but I wouldn't want to eat that big a helping, even if I could. But the amounts given were to give a salad for 4 people.
Also how can a set of 4 main veg ingredients, cos we can't really count the thyme or the mint, be counted as 5 servings?
