There are so many culinary adventures in the kitchen almost everyone can do. This one is  really a simple Italian side dish that goes almost with anything. With the tenderness of the  Kenyan beans it tasted much more better. At the end of the day it is a good veggie treat too. 

Especially yesterday as  I skipped my visit to  the (Boga market- vegetable market in swahili)  my fridge was looking very bleak. Then I decided to prepare these beans to reward my sleepy toil with olive oil and cheddar cheese.

Green bean side dish

You can also try the same method with other readily available cut vegetables from the market. If not cheddar you can also try the other members of the cheese family.


Green beans- 250 gms

Water- 1/4 cup

Olive oil- 1 tspn

Cheddar cheese- 1 tbspn(grated)

Salt to taste(if your cheese does not contain salt)


1. First heat the pan and add the oil under low fire.

2. When the oil is medium hot add in the cleaned and trimmed beans.

3. Toss in the beans about 2 to 3 times.

4. Add in the water and let the beans cook under low fire for a minute.(Do not over cook as you might not get the crunchiness.

5. Switch off the fire and add the grated cheese and relish with eggs and bread for breakfast.
