This dish is simple but oh so delicious. If you are not a fan of coriander then you can use dill, if you are not a fan of dill or coriander just use parsley instead.

Green Beans with Cumin


  • 200g green beans
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • splash of sunflower oil (organic)
  • a big handful of coriander, leaves removed from the stalk


Cut the tops off the beans, leaving the tail. Peel and Julienne the carrots then steam the carrots and beans for 5 to 10 minutes. While they are steaming heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the cumin seeds for a few minutes (avoid burning as they taste too bitter). Mix the green beans and carrots with the cumin and then fold in the coriander. A great side for any meal and wonderful eaten cold too.
