This is so easy, it’s hardly a recipe, more just an idea to have as a healthy snack or serve instead of nuts pre-dinner. I’m always starving when I come home from work but have two young, crazy children, so dinner does not happen for a while. This snack is great; it only takes a minute or two to open a tin of butterbeans, rinse and throw in an oiled baking tin. And needs no stirring or regular checking!
Ingredients (serves 2-3 as a snack)
1 tin of butterbeans
1 tsp oil (I use coconut oil)
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon cumin seeds (optional)
1 lime – zest & juice
Preheat the oven to 200 (fan)/220 (conventional)
- Put the oil into a baking dish, pop into the oven to warm whilst you rinse the butterbeans well.
- Put the butterbeans into the dish, add the cumin, smoked paprika and salt. Mix well.
- Cook for 20 minutes; just before you take the dish out from the oven, add the lime zest and lime juice and cook for 5 more minutes.
