This month I would like to make a very simple but tasty recipe. It’s one of my favourites because my Nan used to make it when we visited her during our summer holidays (we loved helping her to collect the beans from her garden).
Hope you enjoy xxx
1lb fresh broad beans or string beans, ends removed
1tbsp white wine vinegar
2tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
4tbsp onion, minced
4oz diced Serrano ham slices
In a saucepan, boil 2 quarts of water. Add the vinegar and beans. Boil for 5 minutes. Strain and add to a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process.
Add the olive oil to a skillet over medium high heat. Saute the beans until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, onion and ham, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes until the beans are tender. Add salt to taste.
You can also add some tomato sauce if you like – it’s delicious too!
