This substantial Free meal is so easy to put together – canned new potatoes and butter beans make a fantastic quick-fix crush.


  • 3 baby courgettes, halved lengthways
  • 1 unsmoked gammon steak, visible fat removed
  • low calorie cooking spray
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, halved

For the butter bean crush

  • 300g can new potatoes in water, drained
  • 215g can butter beans
  • 2 tbsp fat free natural fromage frais
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • a little roughly chopped fresh parsley


  1. Cook the courgettes in a pan of lightly salted water over a high heat for 2-3 minutes and drain well.
  2. Place a large non-stick griddle pan over a high heat. Spray the gammon with low calorie cooking spray and cook for 4-5 minutes or until nicely charred. Turn the gammon steak and add the courgettes and tomatoes to the other side of the pan. Cook for a further 3-4 minutes, turning frequently.
  3. While the gammon is cooking, make the crush. Tip the potatoes into a small saucepan, add the butter beans and the juices from the can and heat through over a medium heat. Drain well, crush with the fromage frais and season to taste. Stir in most of the parsley.
  4. Put the gammon, courgettes and tomatoes on to a plate, scatter over the remaining parsley and serve hot with the butter bean crush.
