My Favourite Meal

This plate is my new favourite meal.  We are huge fans of fresh beans in this house and we just so happened to get a box of them as a gift a few days ago.  Quickly blanched and then fried in a bit of oil, salt and peppered is my favourite  way to eat them, but I thought we'd make more of a meal the other night.  This might constitute the perfect lunch, or dinner for me.  It's quick (it only takes 10 minutes to make), vegetarian, gluten free and very filling.  Beans, eggs and parmesan, it doesn't need much of a recipe, but incase your lacking in confidence here is your ticket.

Beans, Eggs and Parmesan

Makes a meal for one.

1 handful of fresh beans, trimmed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp thyme vinegar (or balsamic)
1 farm fresh egg
shredded parmesan

Fill a frying pan with water and bring to a boil.  Throw the trimmed beans into the water and blanch for 30 seconds.  Drain the water from the pan and place back on the heat. Add olive oil and dry the beans for a few minutes, but do not overcook.  Salt and pepper the beans and move to a plate.

In the same hot frying pan crack an egg.  Salt and pepper the egg and cook to your liking (a runny yolk taste wonderful.)  Put the egg on top of the beans and shred the parmesan all over the top.  Devour immediately.
