griddled helda beans with goat’s cheese, herbs and flowers

A RECIPE BY Kathy Slack
Serves: 4 Prep time: 9 minutes Cooking time: 6 minutes

Helda beans are like runner beans 2.0. They are flat and long like runners,
but smooth-skinned and stringless – a runner bean after a facelift. The griddling of the beans can be done, excellently, on the grill of a barbecue over a medium-high direct heat or in a griddle pan. Serve with a generous scattering of herbs (and edible flowers if I can find them) on top, with crusty bread alongside.
