This Greek butter bean and spinach dish has a flavour combo that is completely addictive - tomato and mint. Eat it hot or cold with picnics and barbecues. Another beauty from Rick Stein's Venice to Istanbul series.
Rick Stein's Flamenco eggs with tomato and Serrano ham is what you might call Spain on a plate – a sum-up dish of everything we love about Spanish cooking: serrano ham, chorizo, pimentón, tomatoes, garlic and onion. To these basic ingredients he's also added green beans and peas in this recipe from Rick Stein's Long Weekends, and you could also add sliced, cooked new potatoes or chickpeas or the big butter beans called judión.
