  • “Spring is here (boing) and the supermarket has the most gorgeous beans.I used about 4 cloves of garlic, and mostly yogurt with a little sour cream mixed in for richness.Lits of freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of red cayenne as well made this a delicious seasonal meal!Excellent one, Eve!”

  • “I made this with organic broad beans out of my box this week, the flavour was fantastic, and the yoghurt & garlic really complimented the beans.Thanks Evie*.”

  • “The broad beans are not ready yet so I used a tin of Lima beans.Love the garlic yogurt with the beans, I rinsed them well, mixed the garlic and yogurt then just spooned it over the beans and 20 minutes before dinner popped them into the oven. Lovely to have a different veggie for a change – Thanks for posting Evie*”
