A Little Bean Appreciation

Sometimes you’ve just got to take the time to really appreciate the beauty in nature. These broad beans are pink and purple they almost look magical, the colours are so pigmented and really stand out. The broad beans look so pretty and are very nutritious. Life can get really busy at times so always make the effort to just sit and appreciate the wonders that surround you, be it a broad bean, other foods, furniture, technology or the trees outside 🙂 


I’m not sure what dish these beans will be apart of, maybe a stew, soup or used in a salad!! They are locally grown too in an allotment which is always good…

Breakfast Lunch or Dinner

I love this meal because it’s so versatile and you can literally eat it at any time of the day. It’s simple yet very tasty and filling therefore keeping you full for a long while after eating.

Ingredients I used:
– 2 slices of brown bread toasted
– 1 egg
– baked beans
– 1/2 plantain

There’s lots of different flavours going on you get the sweetness from the plantain, savoury from the beans and salty from the egg.

I like to cut my plantain into circles and fry until golden on each side, with my egg I always crack it into a bowl first add a little salt and pepper then whisk lightly before pouring into a frying pan. I didn’t butter my toast because I’ve already got 2 of the foods which are fried.

Even though this dish is quite healthy for and even healthier alternative I would suggest having a boiled egg and simmering the plantain with the skin on for 15mins.
