Butter beans (lima beans) are my favorite type of bean, I eat them almost every day in my salads. I go through so many cans of beans, I decided to try using dried beans, which was only about $1 for the bag. I have so many beans now! I can't believe how much cheaper it is to use dried beans. However, now I have so many of the beans, I don't know what to do with them all! I'm not sure if they can be frozen or not? I have so many, it's worth trying even if they come out yucky..
Well, I decided to make Bean Cakes, and they were pretty good! The only thing is that they were kind of crumbly, they probably needed more liquid to them. I paired them with a Vegan Cocktail Sauce (not pictured). All I did for the cocktail sauce was mix Organic ketchup (I'm very picky with my ketchup, and I usually pay extra for the good stuff, it's so much better) with Horseradish Mustard. Tasted just like the cocktail sauce I remembered!
2 cups butter beans (or your favorite bean)
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 small garlic cloves
3 T Nutritional Yeast
2 T Veganaise
2 T dried parsley
1 tsp oregeno
1/2 tsp salt
These were so simple to make! All I did was mash up the butter beans, then mix in the remaining ingredients, form into patties, and brown in a skillet with a little oil!
I got these pyrex dishes!
This ice crusher! I'm not sure if it works or not, but it's soo cute!
I also got some other items including a cute stool and bookshelf!
