Spring is here (boing) and the supermarket has the most gorgeous beans. I used about 4 cloves of garlic, and mostly yogurt with a little sour cream mixed in for richness. Lits of freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of red cayenne as well made this a delicious seasonal meal! Excellent one, Eve!

I made this with organic broad beans out of my box this week, the flavour was fantastic, and the yoghurt & garlic really complimented the beans. Thanks Evie*.

The broad beans are not ready yet so I used a tin of Lima beans. Love the garlic yogurt with the beans, I rinsed them well, mixed the garlic and yogurt then just spooned it over the beans and 20 minutes before dinner popped them into the oven. Lovely to have a different veggie for a change - Thanks for posting Evie*
