You know, I have forgotten several times now to tell you that the new issue of Bron’s Magazine is out and that I have two recipes in it! To be honest, she makes such great recipes herself that she doesn’t need any collaborators but I was truly happy when she asked me. I have also forgotten to tell you that I will be the photo judge of a recipe competition over at Jul’s Kitchen, I’m doing just a small part so please check it out, she is such a nice blogger that you can choose between reading her posts in English and Italian, imagine that! Do go there, there are great prizes to be won!

OK, having said this, I really have to get going here as I am getting a ton at a time of the wood pellets for next winter’s heating this mornings so I am running between the computer and the place where we store it. We have put in more than three tons already but we still have a few to go so I better hurry up here.
Taccole or Romano beans or Italian string beans are definitely worth trying if you can find them. Here in Italy they are obviously not difficult to find them so I try to cook with them now when they are on the market. This is one way of using them:

quinoa, cooked. About 100 ml/ 0,42 cup per person
Romano beans
hard cheese, I used Asiago but use any kind you like

– Slice the beans thinly and cook them in salted water for 2 minutes. Drain and put in a small bowl wher you mix it with a little olive oil.
– Cut the cheese into small, this strips or small dice and add to the beans.
– Make a rather thick sauce with the mustard, honey, vinegar,a little salt and olive oil.
– Shell the eggs and quarter them.
– Put the quinoa on a plate, spoon some of the bean and cheese mix on top and then the egg on that. Drizzle the sauce over and serve!
