Garlic Fried Runner Beans

I love beans and I love bean season. This is a simple and delicious runner bean recipes that make the perfect side dish or even light lunch! There are so many delicious ways or preparing beans, but just making them garlic fried with a drizzle of lemon juice and sea salt is my favorite. So simple, jet so very delicious.

This side dish pairs well with just about everything! It’s delicious with both fish, chicken and meat. You can also eat it as a light lunch, or include it in a buffet table or when making lot of small dishes. I like to fry them on quite high heat, so that they get warm and a nice and browned surface, but still keep a bit of the crunch.
