Ingredients

  • Knob of butter
  • 2 leeks, sliced diagonally
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • A few fresh thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 400g tin beef consommé
  • 400g tin butterbeans, drained and rinsed
  • 100g pack shredded ham hock
  • 150g frozen or fresh broad beans, blanched, refreshed and skins removed
  • Handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, finely chopped

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a pan over a medium heat. Add the sliced leeks with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-8 minutes until soft. Stir through the garlic and thyme, then cook for a further minute. Stir in the consommé and butterbeans, then simmer gently for 5 minutes. Flake in the ham and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Stir through the broad beans and most of the parsley.
  2. Taste and season, then divide between a couple of bowls. Sprinkle with the remaining parsley and serve with crusty bread
