Green Beans with Mango Chutney

Tender green beans with a tasty mango chutney. This beautiful contrast in flavours and textures accompany any meal flawlessly.

Serves: 4


250 grams round green beans, stem trimmed off
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons mango chutney, sweet or spicy
1 tablespoon water
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon mild curry powder

Cook the green beans in boiling salted water until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold water then drain again.

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan and cook the onion with a good pinch of salt until soft and golden. Add the chutney, water, garlic and curry powder and cook for 2 minutes then add the beans, season and cook until hot.
