Method:
In a pot, bring some water and a pinch of salt to the boil. Add your green beans and cook for approximately 5mins, until al dente. Strain your beans and put to one side.
Wash your carrots; thereafter using a potato peeler, slice long ways to form your carrot ribbons which you need to blanch in boiling water for approximately 2-3mins. Strain your carrots and place into a bowl. Whilst hot, spoon your honey and butter over the carrots allowing them to melt. Add your green beans, halved cherry tomatoes and walnuts to the mix and serve immediately.
