Sounds like a nice recipe. But in Japan, 2-3 kgs. of green beans will end up costing, what, a couple thousand yen? Will need to downsize this one.

2 to 3 kilos of beans for 6 people? Are we feeding a Sumo stable? That's two-thirds to half a pound of beans per person! Either cut down the amount of beans, or invite a few more people in to eat. Sounds like a good recipe though, sans the anchovies.

Green beans can be expensive, but they're so, so easy to grow, and if you plant the climbing variety they needn't take up much room; every year I grow enough to have a surplus, which I freeze to see me through the winter. Last year I planted extra around the base of some corn plants, which seemed to benefit both crops; the beans got a bit of extra shade at the height of summer (not that last summer was particularly sunny), and the corn got extra nitrogen from the bean roots.

Another way to eat more healthily: eat less.

typo correction: half a pound per person →half a kilo, or more than one pound of beans per person.
