  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion , finely sliced
  • 1 small garlic clove , crushed

  • 100ml chicken stock
  • 200g spinach
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • ½ tbsp wholegrain mustard

    Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and fry over a medium heat for 10 mins, or until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 1 min. Stir through the butter beans and stock and bring to a simmer. Add the spinach. Cover and cook for 3 mins or until the spinach is wilted.

    Blitz the mixture using a hand blender for 10 secs, leaving some chunky, whole beans. Stir through the crème fraîche and mustard and season generously, then simmer for 3 mins to thicken. Set aside.

  • STEP 3

    Season the pork chops on both sides. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Hold the chops on their sides with a pair of tongs to brown the fat. Cook each one on either side for 7 mins or until cooked through. Spoon the beans onto plates, slice the pork and arrange on top.
