In this recipe has been used desiccated coconut,  but if you can buy fresh coconut that’s better. Simply pierce a hole in the Shell and drain off the milk,  than crack the shell open with a hammer and dig out the flesh. Grate the flesh finely on a conical or box grater – you will find it sweeter and juicier than desiccated coconut.
You need –
700g fresh or frozen green beans or mange tout
– Salt
-1 Onion
-50g butter or margarine
-50g desiccated coconut
-Freshly ground pepper
-3 table spoons chopped fresh parsley
Cook the beans in boiling salted water for 10 minutes,  or 3 minutes for fresh tout ( for frozen vegetables follow packet instructions),  meanwhile,  finely chop the onion. Heat the butter in the small pan,  add the onion and cook gently until softened stirring occasionally.
Increase heat and add coconut and fry for 2 -3 minutes until golden. Season and mix in parsley. Drain beans and spoon into a serving dish and sprinkle over coconut mixture. Serve immediately.  I normally serve this as a side dish works lovely with  baked chicken and new potatoes.
