Hi

my veg box has a bag of green beans in it - not the thin things that I've had before, big long flat pods, that I've no idea how to cook.

Can anyone help bu telling me how to prepare and cook them?

Many thanks

Are they runner beans?

If so take the sides off with a vegetable peeler as they can be stringy, then slice or chop them up into one inch pieces and steam til tender

Wow, thanks, that's them.

And thanks for the link too, not used the Good Food site before, I think it will help with a few other puzzling veg box stuff - off to investigate Greengages now.

Thanks again
