Creamy butter beans (high-protein & vegan)

I never particularly enjoyed eating beans, especially when they come straight out of a tin. That was until I tried a jar of beans from Bold Bean Co! These beans are something else.

They are delicious eaten straight out of the jar (I am not kidding) or cooked into quick and simple dishes, like this creamy butter bean dish. I cook it with my popular silken tofu sauce base for an extra dose of plant-based protein.

This dish will be ready in just 10 minutes and contains 35g of protein per person. Not bad for beans, ey!
