Also known as lima beans, these beans are an excellent source of nutrition - rich in protein, B vitamins, iron and fiber. They have a creamy velvety texture with a rich, almost buttery flavour.
Butter beans are a great source of carbohydrates, low in calories and a fantastic source of protein - great to eat after a hard gym session! They also make a great vegetarian alternative, as they provide a good source of iron, zinc and magnesium.
By buying and cooking with dried beans rather than canned beans, you will not only enjoy a much nicer taste after they have been cooked, but you'll also save money!
Cooking with Butter Beans
Butter beans are so versatile, you can use them to make party dips, hearty stews, burgers, salads, soups and even brownies!
Soak the beans in plenty of cold water for at least 8 hours or overnight - add more water if the level gets low.Then drain and rinse well, cover with fresh water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for about an hour until tender (don't let them boil or the beans may start to break up). You can add salt after about 30 mins of simmering, once the beans have started to soften, so that the salt can pass through the beans’ softened skin and bring out their flavour. Then drain and season, mash or add to your favourite recipe.
