Chef's tip

«When cooking green vegetables, salt in the water will help them retain their colour. If cooking large quantities, cook in batches. The quicker the vegetables cook, the greener and more nutritious they will be!»

Perfectly cooked green beans tossed in a garlic and shallot compound butter. Ideal served with roast chicken, steak or salmon.
