Also known as lima beans, these beans have a creamy velvety texture with a rich, almost buttery flavour.
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.
