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.

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

This dish can be vegan if the topping is changed to either mashed potato with a melting vegan cheese topping or, Gail's favourite, which is 100g crushed tortilla crisps mixed with grated vegan cheese.
