Green Beans with Mint & Dill

This was deilcious and incredibly simple way to dress up green beans. I loved the combination of mint and dill. I also loved that this dish was served at room temperature. It meant I didn’t have to fart about at the last minute clattering pans to have everything ready at the same time. Easy, tasty food.

INGREDIENTS:
400g green beans
½ cup fresh mint
¼ cup fresh dill
1 garlic clove
salt & pepper
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 lime (juice of)
1 tomato (seeded and finely diced)

DIRECTIONS:
Steam the beans until just soft, but with a bit of bite (about 6-8 minutes). Plunge into ice water to stop from cooking any further.

Place the garlic, mint, dill, salt and pepper and pound into a smooth paste. Squeeze in the lime juice and pour in the olive oil and stir well.

Drain the beans and tumble into a large bowl. Mix in the tomato then pour the dressing over and toss well. Cover and leave for 30 minutes to develop in flavour.

SERVING:
Serve at room temperature alongside anything you like!

  • What a great thing to do with beans. They often look sad and boring as a side but these look very tasty.
