Goodness Butter Beans 3kg
Butter beans are large, creamy-coloured beans with a soft, floury texture when cooked. They make a great vegetarian pate and work well in mixed bean salads, or rich, wintry stews. They are also a useful source of potassium.Average Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
Like most beans, butter beans are rich in the best sort of fibre - soluble fiber - which helps to eliminate cholesterol from the body. They are a good source of potassium, iron, copper and manganese. As a high potassium, low-sodium food they help reduce blood pressure. 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.

Butter beans are fantastic to use in soups or stews, great as a base for making bean pate, and I really like them tossed into a mixed salad too. Really filling and hearty.

I disliked butter beans as a kid, realised they were never cooked or seasoned correctly. The trick is to wash well and soak overnight in boiling water, never add salt while cooking as this will toughen the skin and they won't cook. They can be used in so many dishes from pasta to soups, stews and especially good in stir fries. Reviewer's Name:
