    Braised beans, peas & pancetta

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 6


    1 tbsp olive oil
    154g pack diced pancetta
    1 onion, finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    240g extra fine green beans, halved
    200ml fresh vegetable stock
    400g frozen peas
    20g pack tarragon, leaves stripped and chopped
    Squeeze of lemon


    1. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan, add the pancetta and cook gently for 3 minutes until golden and crisp. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

    2. Stir the onion into the oil left in the pan and cook for 3 minutes until soft and golden. Add the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add the green beans and the cooked pancetta, followed by the stock. Place the lid on and cook until the beans are just tender, about 10 minutes. In the last 3 minutes of cooking time, add the peas. Cook until they are soft and all the liquid has been absorbed.

    3. Stir through the tarragon, a squeeze of lemon and plenty of freshly ground black pepper.
