Tasty side dish with a Moroccan feel, but yet, goes beautifully with pesto chicken and roasted cauliflower.

  • 2 tablespoons Rice Bran Oil
  • 3 Elephant Garlic Cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • leaves from 3 stems, fresh mint, chopped
  • a pinch of sea salt


  • STEP 1
    Cook the beans in boiling water for 4-5 minutes.
  • STEP 2
    In a large bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon oil, lemon juice, mint and salt. Set aside.
  • STEP 3
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a frying pan, add the garlic and fry quickly until browned and crisp.
  • STEP 4
    Assemble the dish, drain the beans well, put them into the lemon mix, along with the garlic and oil. Mix well and then serve whilst warm.
