    Roast spiced runner beans, egg & houmous platter

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 2


    2 tsp olive oil
    280g pack essential Waitrose Runner Beans, trimmed and strings removed
    2 Waitrose British Blacktail Medium Free Range Eggs, at room temperature
    2 tsp Cooks’ Ingredients Herby Zaatar
    100g reduced fat houmous
    Pinch smoked paprika
    1 tsp extra virgin olive oil, to serve
    2 pittas, toasted and cut into strips


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Put the oil into a large roasting tin, add the beans and some seasoning, and toss well. Roast for 10 minutes, turning once, until slightly darker green, a little wrinkled and just tender.

    2. Meanwhile, bring a small pan of water to the boil. Gently lower in the eggs. Boil for 7 minutes, then cool under cold water for 5 minutes. Peel the eggs and cut in half.

    3. Toss the zaatar with the beans and set aside. Spoon the houmous over a plate, top with the beans and eggs, and scatter the eggs with a little smoked paprika and seasoning. Drizzle the extra virgin oil over and around. Serve with the toasted pittas.

    Cook’s tipCooks’ Ingredients Herby Zaatar is a flavourful blend of sesame seeds, sumac, oregano, marjoram and salt. Perfect for dipping and sprinkling.
