    Hi,

    My uncle gave me a massive bag of veg from his allotment including loads of runner beans.

    Any suggestions on doing something more exciting than boiling them?

    Thanks in advance

    Hope this helps you. It has given me inspiration as well !!!

    I am doing the runner beans with tomato and onion but will omit the butter and the corn, syn the wine.


    It is just a matter of common sense when tweaking the recipes to make them SW friendly.


    For example in the Bean Stew you would not use the oil but would substitute fry light.
