minted-butter-beans recipe

 In Greece, this is made with 1/4 pint of olive oil ! Whilst the taste does
 suffer very slightly with the ommission of the oil, I find the addition of a
 very strongly flavoured vegetable stock (1/4 pint) redresses the balance well.
 1 lb of cooked butter beans           3 large onions, finely chopped
 2 cloves of garlic, crushed           1/4 pint of strong veg. stock
 1 x 14 oz can of tomatoes             2 tblsp fresh mint or 1 dried
 Saute onions and garlic in a little of the stock until starting to soften. Add
 the tomatoes and the cooked beans and the mint. Season to taste. Simmer gently,
 covered, for about 20 minutes to allow the flavours to blend.
 I like this as a supper dish with wholemeal bread rolls and a green salad.
 PLEASE....don't try feeding this to any greek people :-) !
