Creamy Butter Beans

If you’re a novice in the realm of cooking with pulses, why not begin your culinary adventure with these luscious creamy butter beans?

As a vegan content developer, “But what about protein?” is one of the most frequent objections I face.

The human body actually doesn’t require as much protein as you might assume, and there are many excellent plant-based sources of protein even if you discount this fact. One of the most popular and cheap choices is beans.

Beans have a lot of flavor, but people who aren’t used to working with them in the kitchen may be confused. Which is totally OK by me! I can assure you that we’ve all been there.

As a result, I prepared a variety of meals based on pulses such as beans, lentils, peas, and edamame. And you won’t believe how amazing this simple recipe for smooth butter beans is!
