Runner beans

Long, coarse and crunchy runner beans are synonymous with late summer when they’re heaven piled on a plate and slathered in butter and pepper, or part of a homecooked roast dinner.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Great stir fried with a little oil, chopped red chilli, garlic, a splash of sherry, rice vinegar and a sprinkling of sugar.
  • Use them in a relish to serve with cheese.
  • Try them in a salad with new potatoes, crumbled pancetta and an oil and lemon dressing.
