Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy pot. Add the shallots, garlic, and season. Cook on a medium-low heat for 12-15 minutes until everything is softened and golden. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, boil the green beans in salted water for 2 minutes. Drain, rinse in cold water and drain again (this allows you to make them ahead if you like; the cold-water rinse will keep them green). Add the beans to the shallots and mix together.

To serve, heat the beans on a low heat for about 3-4 minutes until hot.
