creamy butter beans gently oven-simmered in a brothy of herbs, garlic, and an abundance of olive oil. The beer bread is perfect for soaking up the flavoursome broth, and the mushroom broth is good enough to drink alone.
Add beans to a heavy pot, and top with fresh cold water by 2.5 to 5cm. Slowly bring to a gentle simmer, never letting the water boil. simmer softly for 15 minutes, then pop in whatever aromatics you have and enjoy. Season with salt and top with a generous-but-thin layer of olive oil. cover with a lid a gentle cook for around 1 hour, or until the beans are tender. Taste for doneness and seasoning, and enjoy! alone with an extra glug of olive on top, beer bread, and soft boil eggs-
