Butter bean casserole

Olive oil
1 leek, chopped and rinsed
Garlic, crushed
3 carrots, peeled and diced
Mushrooms, chopped
1 tin butter beans, drained
Splash of white wine
Mixed herbs
Salt and pepper (chili if you fancy)


Barley groats (boil in the bag - from Polish shops, take 15 minutes)
Kale - shredded and steamed (10 minutes in a steamer on top of the groats)

So, in from work ... do this ...

1.  Chop and rinse leek, put a tbsp of olive oil in a pan on a medium heat, tip in the leek - and gently sautee - about 5 minutes.
2.  Peel and chop carrots into smallish dice - add to leeks, stir through.
3.  After a few minutes, add mushrooms and a glass of dry white wine, crushed garlic and a tsp of mixed herbs. Tip in drained butter beans
4.  Put a pan of water on to boil for the groats, when boiling add groats, put shredded kale in steamer on top to steam.
4.  Add water/stock and simmer.

15 mins later... serve
