Organic Butter Beans have a soft creamy texture and go well in salads.

Organic Butter Beans (also known as Lima Beans) are large soft beans which go well in a whole host of recipes.  They come from curved pods about 3 inches long and have been cultivated in Peru for over 7000 years.  Their soft, floury texture makes them a great addition to stews, bean chilli and soups.

Organic butter beans can be added to recipes to provide additional protein, fibre and essential nutrients.  They are a source of folate which contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue – particularly important for those with hectic schedules.

Just one 70g serving of cooked butter beans is a source of Folate, Potassium and Manganese.

Due to their nutritional content butter beans make a filling addition to a meal and help to stave hunger cravings.  The size and texture of butter beans makes them a lovely addition to bean or rice salads.
