  • Round, big-beaned haricots verts cooked until floppy, and drenched in butter.

    — Julian Barnes, 1996, 'Gnossienne', in Cross Channel

    This parasynthetic compound would be unremarkable except that it seems to be used circularly of the haricots themselves; unless perhaps 'haricots verts' is being used in a transferred way (akin to grinding) to refer to a dish made from haricots verts.
