Chef Jules Quickie

Hello Friends,

I hope I find you all well. Every now and again I will share with you some recipes which are quick, easy to prepare and cook. I work strange hours and last night I found myself at home and quite hungry, with no fresh fish available at the time, this is what I came up with. The recipe is as follows;

Ingredients: (Serves 1 main size or 2 entrees).

1 x 400g tin fagioli (butter beans) refer to pantry list

100gm veal, flattened and cut into strips

3 x cloves garlic, chopped

60 ml olive oil

salt and pepper

6 x cherry tomatoes, halved

6 x florets of broccoli


Place a small pot of water on the stove and heat. Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a fry pan and add the veal, cook quickly on a high heat, add the garlic and take off the heat. In the small pot of boiling water add salt to taste, add the broccoli and cook for 2 minutes, then add the drained fagioli, bring to the boil again, then drain, add to the veal, season and add the tomatoes and the rest of the olive oil, and serve.

Chef Jules Tips

Instead of veal you could use a stir fry beef i.e. eye fillet, scotch fillet, pork fillet, or even chicken breast or thigh meat.

Instead of the fagioli or butter beans you could use frozen broad beans, another good thing to have in the freezer, once cooked in salted water and shelled they are amazing and very useful in different recipes left whole or pureed. Incidently this dish is gluten free which is an added bonus for a late night meal.

Hope you enjoy it, Ciao for now!
