Ingredients

  • 90g (3 oz) green beans, trimmed
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small red pepper (capsicum), cut into short strips
  • 8 mushrooms, sliced
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) balsamic vinegar
  • 440g (14 oz) tin butterbeans (lima beans)

Instructions

  1. Blanch the green beans in boiling water for 3 minutes and drain.
  2. Heat half the oil in a frying pan. Add the onion and gently stir for about 2 minutes over medium heat. Add the garlic, red pepper, green beans, mushrooms and vinegar, then cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Thoroughly rinse and drain the butterbeans. Add them to the pan with the remaining oil and stir until just warmed through. Serve.

Notes

  • Personally I prefer to buy dried butter beans and soak them overnight. Rinse and boil them for 30 minutes or until just soft, not mushy. Follow recipe as above.
