Gently fried chopped onion, runner beans and pepper. After a couple of minutes added rice and stir until every grain is turned in the oil. Then added crushed garlic, a pinch of herbs, a tiny pinch of chili flakes and a splash of white wine. Added stock, a ladle full at a time at first... probably about a pint or so. Stirred in thawed prawns and frozen peas. Left on a low heat for about 10 mins until rice is done. Black pepper to taste, in our case a lot.
