Runner Bean Stew

Runner Bean Stew

After spoiling myself with cider, strawberries and ice cream at the Green Man Festival 2008 , finally back home & wanting something delicious to eat. Lots of runner beans in the vegebox so tried out this Jamie Oliver recipe , truly delicious , spicy , hot with a lemony hit. Jamie I think serves this with fish or chicken but it is a fantastic main meal perhaps with a little bread, also good cold.

Its quite hard to manage to cook the runner beans I always just want to eat them raw they are so sweet and crunchy.

Runner Bean Stew

200g of fresh runner beans, roughly chopped
1/2 onion finely sliced
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/2 a tin of tomatoes
Half a fresh red chilli finely chopped
Handful of olives
1/2 tin of anchovies
juice of half a lemon

  1. Fry together the anchovies , chilli onions and garlic
  2. Add the tomatoes and olives simmer gently for 5 minutes
  3. Add the runner beans , simmer for approx 10 minutes
  4. The runner beans should maintain some bite
  5. Squeeze over the lemon juice

    Ooh, that sounds good. Anchovies, olives, chilli and garlic is one of my favourite combinations, always good to find new ways to use it.
