  1. Hull the borlotti beans, rinse them and then set them aside.
  2. In a large pan, brown the spring onion, tomatoes, celery and carrot in 2 tablespoons of oil. Add the beans and salt and cover them with hot water, around 2 litres. Bring to the boil and cook on low for about 30 to 40 minutes or until the beans are tender.
