Chop the celery branch and incorporate it. Season, close the pot and cook (at 2) for 15 minutes after the safety valve rises. After time, open the pot, remove the rosemary and excess broth (if any), and crush with the electric mixer.

Peel and slice two cloves of garlic and brown them in a pan with a drizzle of oil. Chop the scallion, add it and season. Remove the threads from the sides of the green beans, cut them in julienne and add them. Cook for 5-8 minutes. Peel the carabineros, reserve the heads and add the tails to the pan. Cover and let simmer over low heat. Once cooked, remove the carabineros to a plate and reserve them.

Pour the juice from the heads of the carabineros in a beater glass. Add a stream of olive oil, a pinch of salt and crush with the electric mixer.
