    Garlic butter beans.

    Serves 2

    Free on green


    100g cous cous
    1 teaspoon lazy garlic
    2 400g cans butter beans, drained and rinsed
    juice of 1 lemon
    small red onion, thinly sliced
    2 medium tomatoes chopped
    1 tbspn each fresh parsley and coriander



    Prep the cous cous by pouring over 100g boiling water, stirring and covering with a tea towel.

    Put the butterbeans and garlic in a pan and heat through gently for about 5 minutes, you may need to add a little water to prevent them from sticking.

    Add the lemon juice to the butterbeans, stir to coat.

    Fluff the couscous with a fork and tip the beans.

    Mix thoroughly, then add all the other ingredients.

    Season well

    This is delicious warm or cold and is a great accompaniment to grilled chicken.

    Mix some tinned chopped tomatoes and chopped herbs with the butter beans, or even mix with a small tin of baked beans with a bit of curry powder. X
