French Beans With Baby Marrows
|French beans||1 Pound, tender and young|
|Baby marrows||2 Pound, baby sized|
|Garlic||1 Clove (5 gm)|
|Mixed herbs||1 Bunch (100 gm)|
String the beans, and skin the baby marrow.
Slice the marrow into thin rounds, and arrange it in the bottom of a saucepan together with sliced onions and garlic, and the bunch of mixed herbs.
On top put the uncooked French beans.
Simmer over a very gentle heat for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, only in the natural moisture from the marrow and the onions.
Not a vitamin escapes when you use this recipe! Just before serving, add some chopped parsley, salt, pepper, a pinch of grated nutmeg, lemon juice andâ€”if you likeâ€”a little butter.
Note: Lentil recipes require the brown continental variety, not the yellow English split lentil.
