A truly delicious and enjoyable meal. I didn't have beans as they aren't in season here, so used fresh raw celery instead which worked really well. I also used 'Agria' potatoes rather than the red ones which were recommended. This recipe has been saved to my Cookbook and will definitely be made again.
