This is a great side dish with a different flavour. It accompanies Italian pasta dishes very well and is very quick and easy to make.


Serves: 4 

  • 280g frozen cut green beans
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) water
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 anchovy fillets, oil reserved
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper to taste
