Buttery haricots verts, or French green beans, take on the umami flavour of miso paste in this festive side dish. Crunchy pepitas, which are hulled pumpkin seeds, add texture and a subtle nuttiness that complements the tender-crisp beans.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 25 minutes
  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 800 g haricots verts trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon white miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon liquid honey
  • 1/2 cup pepitas
  • pinch salt
  • 3 shallots thinly sliced

Method

In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook haricots verts, in 2 batches, until bright green and slightly tender, about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl of ice water to chill; drain well and pat dry. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.)

Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together butter, miso paste and honey. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 3 days.)

In large nonstick skillet, melt 1 tbsp of the miso paste mixture over medium heat; cook pepitas, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Remove tobowl. Sprinkle with salt.

In same skillet, melt remaining miso paste mixture over medium heat; cook shallots, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 4 minutes. Add haricots verts; cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, about 4 minutes. Remove to platter. Sprinkle with pepitas.

Tip from The Test Kitchen: If haricots verts are unavailable, thinly slice large string beans on a long angle.
