Green Beans with Walnuts

(Malohta, Black Sea region)

Green Beans with Walnuts
200 gr green beans, washed, trimmed
2-3 tbsp lemon juice
4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup walnuts, ground
1 garlic clove, smashed with salt
1/2 tsp red pepper, ground or crushed
1 pinch coriander

Cut the beans in 2 or 3 pieces depending on how long they are. Boil in salty water until they are softened, then drain. Pour lemon juice and olive oil, and toss.

Meanwhile mix the walnut with garlic, red pepper, coriander, salt and pepper. Toss with green beans. Leave in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving.

Beans are in season in England now. Everyone who grows them has too many for a while ! This recipe is a marvellous change from plain boiled beans. We ate them on their own as they were so good. Thanks for the recipe.
