  • Top and tail the beans and cut in half if very long; leave whole if the beans are small and young.
  • Heat the oil in a large pan and gently fry the onion and garlic until they soften and turn a pale golden color.
  • Place the beans on top of the onions, then the tomato and half the parsley. Sprinkle with the oregano, salt and pepper to taste and sugar.
  • Cover the pan tightly and simmer over a gentle heat for about 20 minutes until the beans are tender.
  • Check the liquid from time to time, and add a little water if it seems to be evaporating too much. You should have a thick sauce at the end of the cooking time.
