Borlotti with rapekernel oil and focaccia – Cheerio Nigel!

This is the final week cooking with Nigel Slater at I heart Cooking Clubx. Since April I participated nearly every week and there’s now a collection of 30 Nigel Slater recipes on this blog. To say Cheerio Nigel!, I used up a few from my little pink beans

which seem to be dried borlottis. I prepared the recipe on September, 26th from The Kitchen Diaries: A Year in the Kitchen with Nigel SlaterISBN 978-0670026418 ISBN 978-0670026418 *. Instead of olive oil I used rapekernel oil, the nordic „olive oil“.

PREPARATION

  1. Put the beans with bay leaves and 300 ml water into a pressure cooker. Bring to the boil, skim off, close lid and cook about 45 minutes. They should be tender but still have a bit of bite to them.
  2. Drain and season with salt, then drizzle with a little oil. In a shallow pan warm garlic gently, without coloring, in oil. Toss the beans in with the olive oil, stir gently, then tip them into a bowl with the rocket leaves
  3. Eat with the foccacia or other large-pored bread , whilst the beans are still warm.

    We are so glad to have you with us at IHCC! I have never seen borlotti beans like that and I’m so intrigued. Beans are one of my favorite foods and this looks like a very satisfying meal. I would love to try it!

    I would welcome a plate of that for lunch today! Canola/rapeseed oil is very common here since we grow the plant but I haven’t come across a cold-pressed version. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for Canadian „olive oil“ ;)!
