May we just tell you how much we love beans? What a great source of protein, right? Plus, they are a blank canvas for flavor. This may just be our new favorite way to eat butter beans!
We are always looking for new ways to add flavor to beans. Don’t get us wrong, we love them plain, but that can get rather boring when you eat them multiple times a week.
This recipe is a crazy easy side dish; you’re looking at under 5 minutes of cook time. Butter beans have a wonderful creamy texture, so we threw in some cherry tomatoes for a nice “bite contrast”. The mustard-mint sauce couldn’t be easier; it’s only 3 ingredients! We used Black Pepper Mustard from Mustard and Co. ; you can always substitute with your favorite stone ground mustard, and add a good amount of freshly ground black pepper to it. We encourage you to get creative! No rules, right? We think using a blend of honey dijon, vinegar, and molasses would be fantastic too.
