Green beans often take a backseat at the dinner table but this recipe throws them into the spotlight. The beans are quickly charred with garlic and lay the base for a silky poached egg and a walnut brown butter. It plays on the flavors of hollandaise with less prep, and I could imagine serving it for any meal of the day.

  • Gr├╝ne Bohnen
    100 g Gr├╝ne Bohnen
  • Ei
    2 Stk Eier
  • Waln├╝sse, ganz
    25 g Waln├╝sse, ganz
  • Butter
    30 g Butter
  • Zitrone
    1 Stk Zitrone
  • Knoblauchzehe
    1 Stk Knoblauchzehe
  • Oliven├Âl
    1 TL Oliven├Âl
  • Salz
    1 TL Salz
  • Wasser
    500 ml Wasser


  • Schritt 1/5

    Add water to a pot and set to high heat. Crack each egg into its own small container (this will make it easier to transfer to the pot later).

  • Schritt 2/5

    Wash and trim the green beans. Add to a pan on high heat with olive oil and toss frequently. The greens should char but be careful not to burn them. When the beans are nearly done (about 5 minutes) add a minced clove of garlic and toss through until just cooked. Remove from heat.

  • Schritt 3/5

    Once the pot of water is boiling, lower heat to medium to simmer and stir the water in a circular motion to create a sort of vortex. Drop one egg into the vortex and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until the whites are set but the yolk is still soft. Remove the cooked egg and poach the second.

  • Schritt 4/5

    While the eggs are poaching, add butter and whole walnuts to a pan and stir frequently. The butter will melt and eventually brown to a deep golden color. The nuts will toast while releasing some flavor into the butter.

  • Schritt 5/5

    Plate the green beans, poached egg, and walnut butter sauce. Chop the walnuts to top (or optionally leave whole). Add flaky salt and lemon zest and serve with a good slice of bread.
