Do need a bit of cooking to soften them...

but I find a couple of cans - cooked for 5-10 mins in the soup then blitzed - a great way of adding healthy protein and a creamy body to vegetable soups.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Excellent, quite delicious.

These go well in stews, but we also like them as a straight vegetable on the plate maybe with carrots and greens if you have some braised beef or any other meat. Very tasty just as they are. I have lots of tins in the cupboard.

Good for stews

Very handy for adding to stews to make them more healthy.

Undercooked, not enough salt

I love butter beans, but these need pre-cooking before adding to a recipe. They lack the creaminess of other brands.

Filling and tasty

Butter beans are much under-rated additions to stews and casseroles. They can also be eaten cold with salad, just washed or in a light salad dressing. I'll sometimes add them to crispy lardons and sun dried tomatoes in a pan for a quick and tasty supper.

Curried Squash Pot Pies

Curried Squash Pot Pies video

These curried squash pot pies are delicious vegetarian pies that meat eaters will love too. Simon has made the white sauce with coconut milk rather than traditional cow’s milk so the pies are suitable for people who are lactose intolerant. He has added paprika and curry powder for a hint of spice that complements the sweetness of the roasted squash. Part of our Daily Brunch with Ocado recipe collection.

Variation Use flageolet beans instead of butterbeans, if you prefer – these have a much softer texture.
