Flat beans 350g


Availability: In stock


Organic flat beans. Fresh, snappy and succulent. To squeak or not to squeak? However well done you like your beans, they’re an easy way to add sweet greenery to any plate.


Slice into bite-sized chunks (no de-stringing needed). Steam or boil in salted water until they’re how you like them (4-8 mins), then toss with butter or oil, add to a salad or smother in rich tomato sauce.

They’re just as good – richer but less bright green – braised or slow-roasted with olive oil, chopped onion and garlic.


Keep in their bag in the salad drawer of the fridge, where they should last up to a week before losing their snap.

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.

BBQ tips

Make sure your BBQ is on a medium/high heat (with steady glowing embers). Rub the beans lightly with oil and throw them straight onto the grill bars. Cook for 2-3 mins, until marked and starting to blister. Flip them over and cook for a further 2-3 mins. Transfer to a bowl and toss with olive oil, sea salt and black pepper. Slice them into large pieces and serve with some fresh herbs and lemon wedges on the side for squeezing.
