    Default Over grown beans

    We have lots of green beans which are a bit too far gone to eat whole as a veg, nit enough to dry and keep as beans. Basically, very knobbly french beans.

    I was thinking of using them in a hearty veg soup with cannelini beans or such

    Any other suggestions?

    I ended up shelling them, cut up a few thinner pods into chunks and made a sort of stew with onions, garlic, peppers and tomatoes with ras el hanout.

    Having it with lamb chops, garlic spinach and couscous (or possibly spuds).
    It smells heavenly!
