I love making roasted chickpeas (garbanzo beans) for a snack or to add to pretty much any salad or soup. However, I decided to go against the grain for this recipe and roast butter (lima) beans instead. Absolutely delicious! And that’s the thing about beans: as long as they are hearty enough, roast away. Oh, and P.S., if you love garlic, then you’ll love this dressing, but perhaps make sure you eat it on a non-date night!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 x 400g butter beans, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 tablespoons ground cumin
250g fresh spinach
good handful pine nuts

For the dressing

Quantity Ingredient
1 whole head of garlic, cloves, separated but skins on
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
2 lemons, juiced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put the beans into a mixing bowl and toss with the olive oil and cumin. Spread them out on the baking sheet with the garlic cloves for the dressing and drizzle with just a bit more olive oil. Bake for 10–12 minutes until lightly browned, then remove from the oven to cool for a couple of minutes.
  3. Squeeze the garlic out of the skins into a food processor or blender with the remaining dressing ingredients and blend. Put the spinach into a large bowl and coat it thoroughly with the garlic dressing. Sprinkle over the pine nuts and butter beans, then thoroughly enjoy!
