Recipe for a Quick Runner Bean Coleslaw

By In Recipes
That time of year when the vegetable plot runs away with itself and one gets flooded by a mass of ripe and ready fruit and vegetables. Just as one gets a little bored with courgettes then the runner beans start coming in. Once you have boiled or steamed a few, or fried up a few with a little chopped shallot (slice into three of four pieces on the slant, par-boil then add to onion fired in butter, add a splash of white wine vinegar and a pinch of sugar) what else can you do with them? How about this recipe for a Quick Runner Bean Coleslaw. The result is nice on its own but try stuffing a pitta bread with a spoonful or two and top with some cold shredded chicken…

    Great runner bean recipe by the looks of it. Very original. Just been handed a bunch of runner beans by our neighbour from her allotment – may have to give this a try.

    This looks delicious. I like that you leave the quantities more up “to taste”…that’s exactly how I like to cook!
