Method

  • Gently heat the oil in a large pan and add the onion and garlic.
  • Stir well. Saute covered for 5 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes, chopped.
  • Cook gently until the onions are soft.
  • Wash the runner beans and trim the ends. Then slice them into 2cm chunks.
  • Add the runner beans and butter beans (or cannellini), with the wine, balsamic vinegar and stock.
  • If your sauce needs thickening, use the cornflour: mix it with 2 tablespoons cold water and then stir quickly into the runner bean mixture.
  • Add the herbs and taste before seasoning with salt and pepper (the stock cube may already have quite a lot of salt in).
