Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Cook the beans in boiling salted water for 2-3 mins until tender, drain and set aside. Heat the oil in a small pan, fry the garlic until pale golden, then add the beans and season. Add the shallots and stir to combine, then remove from the heat. Serve warm or at room temperature drizzled with Sherry vinegar and sprinkled with chives.

RECIPE TIPS
PREPARING RUNNER BEANS

Runner beans are often overlooked because they have a reputation for being stringy. If you choose them as fresh as possible, and lightly shave the sides with a potato peeler to get rid of the tough string that runs down the outside edge, they’ll be as tender as any other green bean.
