Serving suggestion:

Young beans can be served with bread, pita bread or other toppings or eaten as an addition to the main dinner course.

But it’s best to serve it straight away, when it is warm and fragrant.

I eat it with the skin on, young beans do not need to be peeled, and it is not even advisable because of the vitamins hidden in it.
