our online store >>
Shell and skin the beans, leaving a brillant green little bean.
In a pan heat the oil on a high heat and briefly fry the beans,
ham and garlic. Then reduce the heat and let it stew for 20 minutes
or the beans are tender. Season as required and sprinkle with chopped
herbs such as parsley, mint or fennel.
This is wonderful at any time of day, we have it
for breakfast at about 10, or as a snack or starter.
You will need:
- A day old barra (french stick)
- A peeled clove of garlic
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Fresh tomato
Slice the barra lengthwise and toast until golden,
then rub the toasted side with the garlic clove
all over. Take the tomato and slice in half and
rub vigourously over the toast. Drizzle lots and
lots of olive oil onto the toast let it soak in
and enjoy! Some people like to sprinkle a little
salt on too.
