  • 1 1/2 pounds Kwintus beans
  • 6 strips of bacon
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tablespoon marjoram, chopped
  • Coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large skillet, steam the beans in 1/2 inch of water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water; pat thoroughly dry.

  2. In the same skillet, cook the bacon over moderately high heat until crisp; drain well and crumble. Add the garlic to the drippings in the skillet and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Add the beans and half of the marjoram, season generously with pepper and toss until hot. Transfer the beans to a platter. Garnish with the walnuts, bacon and the remaining marjoram and serve.
