Made just as the recipe except for the oil, used balsamic and its an unusual taste but all 6 at the table asked for more, that says it all. - 12 Dec 2010

Used different ingredients. Made this for Easter and it was very good. Used toasted almonds instead of hazelnuts and added some lemon juice to the cooking water. Reheats nicely if you don't overcook the beans. - 24 Jul 2008

Used different ingredients. Like some other reviewers, I used toasted almonds. The lemon gave the beans a lovely freshness without being overpowering & the almonds added a lovely crunch. - 24 Jul 2008
