Kwintus Beans with Marjoram, Walnuts and Bacon

  • FAST

Flat, yellow Kwintus beans are similar in shape and texture to Romano beans.

  1. 1 1/2 pounds Kwintus beans
  2. 6 strips of bacon
  3. 1 garlic clove, minced
  4. 1 tablespoon marjoram, chopped
  5. Coarsely ground pepper
  6. 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  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.
