Butter Bean Salsa

Aaah Butter Beans, I just love the delicate flavour of these beans.   Sometimes I cook them in a curry or add it to a rice dish (my Spinach and Butter Bean Rice) and then there are times I just want to enjoy the natural flavour and the best way to do this, is, incorporating them into a salsa.  These beauties are available throughout the year, dry or canned.  I normally just pressure the dry beans until soft but also keep a few cans handy.  I find that combining my Butter Beans Salsa to veggie burgers and sandwiches immediately transforms something from blah into “Blah di Good” 🙂  Not only do these beans offer a low cholesterol, high fibre and good protein but flavour as well.  Now how awesome is this.  Recipe is follow:
