Ingredients

  • 180g green beans, trimmed
  • 5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 60g Gaeta or Kalamata black olives, pitted
  • 80g soft goat’s cheese
  • a handful basil
  • ½ lemon, juiced

Method

  • STEP 1

    Blanch the green beans in a large pan of boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until just tender, then plunge straight into a bowl of iced water. Leave to cool for 5 minutes, then drain well.

  • STEP 2

    Gently heat the olive oil and garlic in a frying pan over a medium heat and, when
    it’s sizzling and just starts to colour, add the olives and green beans for a few minutes to warm through.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the pan from the heat and break in the goat’s cheese, tear the basil, squeeze over the lemon juice and season. Divide between two plates to serve.
