  • 400g of fresh green beans
  • a pinch of coarse salt
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of pomegranate molasses (or 1 case of balsamic vinegar and a pinch of sugar)

First cut the green beans by removing both ends by hand. It takes a little time but the taste is worth it!

Then put some water in the pan, add a pinch of coarse salt and bring to the boil. When the water boils, put the green beans in the pan and let them cook for 5-7 minutes.

They should still be crisp but definitely cooked. Then immediately remove the beans from the boiling water and put them in the colander under the cold water tap. This will stop the cooking process and leave them crisp.

And once they are cold, you can put them in the bowl and drizzle with olive oil, pomegranate molasses, pepper and sea salt.

Finally, mix them well so that they are evenly coated with the vinaigrette thus created.

Finally, sprinkle the sliced ​​almond on top.
