This is a delicious meal that is so flavourful. You won't believe it's only 5 main ingredients. You can eat it on it's own but I like to serve it with mashed potatoes to soak up the delicious sauce. Set aside some of the fresh mint for garnishing.

A healthy vegetarian version of shepherd's pie. This recipe is extremely versatile; add whatever sort of veg and beans you like. Vegetables never tasted so good!

A fabulous recipe for homemade vegetarian burgers. Butter beans make a great base. Experiment with different spices, cheeses and flavourings to make these your own! Just be sure to avoid over-mixing the butter beans (mashing by hand makes this hard to do, but it could happen in a food processor.) Serve as you would any other burger.

I use my cataplana to cook this dish, however, you can achieve the same results in a casserole dish. Wonderful and warming stew made with pork, chorizo, tomato and butter beans. Serve with crusty bread to mop up the juices.

A delicious vegan-friendly soup, that's packed full of protein. Butter beans are simmered with vegetables in a vegetable stock. Enjoy for lunch or dinner. Serve with crusty bread, if desired.
