Butter beans are large, creamy-coloured beans with a soft, floury texture when cooked. They make a great vegan pate and work well in mixed bean salads, or rich, wintry stews.
Nutritional info: Butter beans are rich in soluble fibre, which helps to eliminate cholesterol from the body. They are a good source of folate, potassium, iron, copper and manganese. Not only are they low in fat, but when combined with grains, beans supply high quality protein which provides a healthy alternative to meat or other animal protein.
Ingredients: Organic butter beans.
