It really is that simple
For such an easy recipe, this butter bean mash recipe really packs in the flavour. The garlic and lemon are a delicious combo with the earthiness of the butter beans. I particularly love how smooth and creamy this mash is; it’s such a satisfying dish.
Butter bean mash is one of our classic go-to easy dinner additions
We often made this as a swap for mashed potato or if we want to boost the protein content of a dinner. It goes so well with all sorts of foods; one of our favourites is to have it with pan-fried aubergine and courgette rounds. It would also be totally at home in a buddha bowl and as a side with a Sunday roast dinner.
Our butter bean mash is a foolproof recipe!
If I ever get distracted by preparing another dish and let this dry out, I know I can simply revive it. I just add an extra splash of almond milk and mash it back up. It goes right back to its lovely smooth and creamy texture.
This recipe is great because it’s:
- Easy and quick
- Only 7 ingredients
