Beans and mangetout with hazelnut and orange

From Ottolenghi: www.ottolenghi.co.uk

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 400g beans
  • 400g mangetout
  • 70g unskinned hazelnuts
  • 1 orange
  • 20g chives roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut oil (or another nut oil if unavailable)
  • Coarse sea salt and black pepper

Method

Preheat the oven to 180˚. Using a small sharp knife, trim the stalk ends off the beans and the mangetout, keeping the two separate. Bring plenty of unsalted water to the boil in a large saucepan – you need lots of space for the beans as this is crucial for preserving their colour. Blanch the beans in the water for 4 minutes, then drain into a colander and run them under plenty of tap water until cold. Leave to drain and dry. Repeat with the mangetout, but blanch for only 1 minute.

While the beans are cooking, scatter the hazelnuts over a baking tray and roast in the oven for 10 minutes. Leave until cool enough to handle, and then rub them in a clean tea-towel to get rid of most of the skin. Chop the nuts with a large, sharp knife. They should be quite rough; some can even stay whole.

Using a vegetable peeler, remove the zest from the orange in strips being careful to avoid the bitter white pith. Slice each piece of zest into very thin strips (or use a citrus zester to do the whole job).

To assemble the dish, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, toss gently, then taste and adjust the seasoning. Serve at room temperature.
