This is another easy peasy 10-minute vegetable dish. To shortcut the cooking process, you can pre-cook the beans first by dumping it into a pot of boiling water for about 3-5 minutes, and draining before frying, without the water, at step 2.
Ingredients (feeds 6):
600gm fine French beans, washed with ends trimmed
2 cups sweet corn kernels
2 cloves garlic, minced (can up this to 5 cloves if you like)
3 tbsp butter (get the best French butter money can buy, it makes a difference)
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
Dash each of oregano, thyme and tarragon
1/4 cup water
Salt to taste

2) Add beans and water, and fry for about 10 minutes.
3) Add corn, and stir through for another 5 minutes, with sugar and herbs. Salt to taste before serving.
