- 450g/ 1 lb French beans, topped and tailed
- salt and pepper
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
- 225g/ 8oz mushrooms, wiped and thickly sliced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons home-made tomato sauce (see page 131), or tomato puree
Cook the beans for about 5 minutes in boiling salted water, drain and quickly refresh them under the cold tap.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan and fry the garlic until it browns.
Add the mushrooms, parsley, lemon juice and some salt and pepper. Let them cook gently for about 5 minutes, then add the beans it all simmer for another 5 minutes or so, and serve.
Seemed to take more effort than expected and while the result was not bad it was not so special either. Worth trying again as a regular though.
