Next time you’re in the shop, grab a couple of tins of butter beans for this quick and easy healthy brunch meal. I make a batch which feeds my husband for the next couple of days (I’m not a fan of butter beans lol).
You will need: 2 tins of butter beans, 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 medium sized onion, salt, 7 Lebanese spices (black pepper if you haven’t got this in your cupboard), and a handful of coriander.
How I do it: I finely chop the onion and garlic sautéing them in rapeseed oil. I drain the butter beans and add to the pot for about 5 mins mixing everything together. Adding the tomato and the spices. Taste and see whether you want more salt or pepper. You can add chilli flakes if you fancy. Let it all simmer for 20 mins. Chop a handful of coriander and add it just before you plate! Drizzle some good olive oil & serve with rice or quinoa or pitta bread or toast. This dish goes with a lot of other ingredients.
I had leftover sourdough bread, I cut them into squares and add it to the pot which soaked in all the juiceness!
