    Something else. I added 1/2 tsp cumin and freshly ground black pepper and a glug of balsamic vinegar  -  19 Aug 2010


    Runner beans aren't the most exciting things in the world, but this recipe turns them around Very nice as a side dish.  -  12 Sep 2015


    Excellent - even better when allowed to mature for a couple of days in the fridge  -  14 Sep 2014
