Adapted Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall recipes below, tried and tested and delicious:


Serves 4

3 Tbsp olive oil
2 red onions, diced
1 bay leaf
3 garlic cloves, finely sliced
500g runner beans, cut up
350g cherry tomatoes, whole
500ml vegetable/chicken stock
2 Tbsp dried oregano
Parsley to garnish
salt and pepper to taste


Warm the oil in a large fry pan over a medium heat, add the onions and bay leaf and fry, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until soft. Add garlic and cook for a further minute, add beans and tomatoes, season to taste and cook for 2 minutes. Pour in the stock, add the oregano and simmer, uncovered until tender and the liquid has thickened into a sauce [20 to 25 mins].


Serves 2 to 4

280g French beans, cut up
3 Tbsp olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
Small handful mint leaves, chopped
Handful of fresh dill, chopped or half tsp dried dill
150g feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
50g walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped


Cook beans until tender, drain and refresh in cold water. Dress the beans with the olive oil, lemon juice, mint, some of the dill and season to taste. Serve topped with crumbled feta cheese, walnuts and the remainder of the dill.
