  1. My husband really loves butter beans so this recipe will be tested very soon! The pic is absolutely brilliant.

  2. Oh good heavens Wendy, they sound absolutely amazing. I’ve been reading a lot of Nigel Slater recently, so I have mustard on the brain (he seems to be a mustard fiend) and this fits right in.

  3. Maninas – 🙂

    Smithsoniusandsonata – Cut down on the honey? That sucks a bit.

    Jamjar – It was and they were!

    Wendy – Hello! Enjoy. x

    Johanna – I take it “butterbean” is a British word?

    Beth – Noooooo… Who doesn’t like butterbeans?? 😉

    Kathryn – They are very Nigel-ish. Adore his cooking too.

    Maija – So what do you substitute for honey?

    Tresna – It is lovely. Hope you do try it.

    Mark – That’s what made me make them in the first place. 🙂

    Jane – Soooo pleased!!

  4. These sound very unusual and tasty! I tend to buy red kidney beans all the time – now have a great excuse to buy butterbeans instead (much harder to come buy over here, however)!

  5. The normal vegan substitute is agave syrup, which is very similar, but I like to use maple syrup – which obviously tastes different, but who doesn’t like maple syrup. :-> Maple and mustard works just as well as honey and mustard.

    I tried this recipe and it turned out a bit dry and starchy and the flavour (while good) could have been stronger, but I used freshly cooked beans and it’s possible I underestimated the amount of beans, thus having too little seasonings. I will probably try it again some other time using them much more generously.

  6. Nice blog you created! It looks very well laid out, and looks like you know exactly what you’re doing. Hopefully you keep your blog updated so people like me can be back and read some more!!
