Lovely Beans & Bacon

Yes am not a food stylist just a regular mummy who grabs any plate she can so that is why you see the eyeball of thomas the tank engine staring at you!
This recipe comes from 'Jamie's 30 minute meals' (see reference below).  Its very adaptable for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  I made the entire meal last night and these beans were left over.  Today I am having it for lunch on some stone baked light rye sourdough.  This recipe is super fast and super healthy.  You could really add almost any bean you like to the dish and extra greens e.g. spinich would be yum. 

From: Jamie Oliver, 2010, ‘Jamie’s 30 minute meals’, Penguin: London.
