This makes a fantastic side, served warm or cold. Swap the chickpeas for any beans and make use of the freezer to keep green beans in.

  2. Steam green beans in about 6 tbsp of water, lid on, until just tender, about 5 minutes then drain any excess liquid and add to the serving bowl along with the drained chickpeas.
  3. Put the pan back on the heat and toast the nuts for a minute until just golden then roughly chop and top the salad with the nuts, chilli flakes and season to taste.
