These little green beans go really well with grains like pearl barley - for a light touch, serve cold with goat's cheese, mint and nuts

Ingredients

For the dressing

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the stock in a medium saucepan until boiling, then add the broad beans and cook for 3 mins until they float. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl and run under cold water to stop them cooking further. Squeeze the beans from their skins, if desired.

  • STEP 2

    Add the pearl barley to the stock and simmer over a low heat for 40-45 mins until tender. Drain the barley, stir through the mint leaves while still warm, then leave to cool.

  • STEP 3

    For the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together, season generously and mix into the cooled barley. Serve on a large platter or individual plates, scattered with the radishes, hazelnuts and goat’s cheese.
