Categories: Sides & Salads

Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: 15 minutes



  • 1kg green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 1 tsp of Filippo Berio Classico Olive Oil
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 100g fresh cranberries
  • 125g goat cheese, crumbled
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside.
  2. Add the green beans to the pan using oil to coat the beans and pan. Sauté for 3-5 minutes, tossing occasionally until the green beans start to “char”. At this point, cover the skillet with a lid and let steam for another 5-7 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, add the cranberries and sauté for another 2 minutes until the cranberries are warmed through and starting to burst. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Plate the green beans with the cranberries, crumble the goat cheese and bacon on top and serve warm.
