  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 spoonful stock
  • Parsley, minced

Put the beans in a stew pan with plenty of water and a handful of salt. Set over a strong fire. When done, blanch and drain the beans.

Put the beans back in the stew pan with a bit of butter and the fried, diced onions. Sprinkle in the flour. Let it stew for a few minutes but do not allow them to brown.

Add the stock, some minced parsley and green onions. Season with pepper and salt to taste. Let it come to a boil, stirring well. Thicken with the egg yolks, beaten in a little cream.

Just before serving, add lemon juice.
