In a bowl, toss mushrooms with half the lemon juice and set aside – the lemon juice will soften the mushrooms. Blanch the beans in boiling salted water for 5-6 mins until they still have a crunch, but they are not squeaky, then drain and cool in iced water.

Toss the beans and mushrooms together in a bowl with the herbs and season with salt and pepper. Toss through the tomatoes, remaining lemon juice and the olive oil and scatter with Parmesan just before serving.
