On to bento!!!!!!!!!!!
Today I’ve made this mouthwatering Chinese char siu turkey on a bed of crushed creamy butter beans!
The Char siu is a marinade of soy and Chinese flavours reduced into a rich sticky sauce to coat succulent turkey.
The butter beans were cooked with chives, parsley, fresh coriander, a spooning of Greek yoghurt and a squeeze of zingy lime!
The mild, bright, creamy taste and soft yet meaty texture of the beans went very well with the Char siu’s rich taste and are a great quick substitute for rice or even for creamy mashed potatoes.
Crushed butter beans and Char Siu turkey….
An unexpected match in Heaven!
