What bean tastes so velvety and buttery and substantial and delicate all at once? The butter bean does! These cream-coloured beans are named after the dairy product with a similarly rich consistency: butter. Hello deliciousness. These guys are flat and chewy, with a mild flavour.
One of the unique pleasures of butter beans is their size. They are huge. Because of this, they make a particularly good stand-in for people looking to eat less meat. They are also the showstoppers of beans – so they can really star in a meal. Here are some ideas for butter beans:
* Soup - A bean soup where you make them the main ingredient as a substitute for meat, for example, a chicken soup!
* Stuffed in tacos
* Crushed up or pureed for a dip - think butter bean hummus
* Tossed in a salad
* Mix ‘em in with some pasta or even substitute them for the pasta!
OK OK, we’re done. We’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.
