  • 6 ounces flageolet beans

Step 1

Soak the beans overnight, then boil gently for two hours until thoroughly soft.

Wash mushrooms carefully and chop roughly, stalks included, unless very woody. Chop onion, garlic and half a green pepper, fry in a spoonful of oil or drippings until brown. Add mushrooms and fry — add a little water, or oil if you like your food rich, if necessary. Simmer gently until mushrooms are soft and the liquid is somewhat reduced (milk caps give off a lot of liquid during cooking).

Add beans and wild thyme and cook the mixture for another 10 to 15 minutes. Flavour with pepper and salt.
