NEED TO KNOW
Otherwise known as lima beans, creamy butter beans are a great ingredient to have on standby and are the perfect addition to flavourful snacks, sides and salads alike.
Blitz them with lemon juice and garlic to make a delicious dip for kale crisps, drain and fry until crispy and golden before combining with butternut squash, goat’s cheese and chilli, or serve as part of a Greek salad platter.
Butter bean mash is a great alternative to potatoes. Add rosemary, lemon zest and roasted garlic to really up the flavour factor.
