This is an excellent recipe, a lot better than mine. I invented mine some years ago for summer use, because we all like beans but not necessarily hot, and it was good with salad veg.Being whisked less mine was more a semi-pate. However, yours is much more imaginately flavoured than mine, and yours is the one for me now. Thank you, elsie across the pond
