Butterbeans are not for everyone. But if you like them or are willing to try some, we have a simple recipe submitted to us by food blogger Sarah Leche. Despite keeping the ingredient list short and simple, it's still flavorful. Of course, it’s also adaptable, so if you want to add bell pepper, celery or other seasonings, by all means.
It’s up to you if you want to add salt to taste before or after. Sarah finds that adding salt before the beans are ready keeps them from getting the soft texture she prefers.
