Toss warm cooked beans with crisp pancetta and sliced spring onions, plus a good drizzle of balsamic
- Riverford cooks

How to prepare

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.

Storage

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