Dragon Tongue Beans with Green Relish


1 pound of dragon tongue beans
2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup pistachio nuts, chopped
1 cup fresh parsley, very finely diced
4 Jimmy Nardello peppers, seeded and finely diced


  1. Bring a salted pot of water to a boil. Remove the ends off beans and cut diagonally in 1-inch pieces. Boil beans for 5-6 minutes, or until tender.
  2. In a separate frying pan over medium heat, add the remaining ingredients. Fry together for about 5 minutes, just enough for the parsley to wilt and the peppers to soften.
  3. Toss the relish with the freshly boiled beans in a large serving bowl. Add some cracked pepper and sea salt if you desire.
