I've loved the idea of baking beans ever since I discovered my favorite recipe for preparing limas.
I guess this recipe is just another extension of that. I'm wondering however, if Scottish tinned butter beans are different from US butter beans? These weren't anywhere near as pretty as A Wee Bit of Cooking's beans. I'll try again with another type of bean as I'm sure this is a sound recipe!
Tasty, but I wanted to love them just a little more than I did.
Baked Honey and Mustard Butter Beans:
(A Wee Bit of Cooking's blog)
1 can of butter beans, drained, rinsed and dried
1 Tbs honey
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp wholegrain mustard (I didn't have this, so used Country Dijon for both teaspoons of 'tard)
Salt and pepper
A few thyme sprigs
Preheat oven to 375
Mix the honey, mustard, a glug of olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl. Add the butter beans and toss well.
Add beans to a oven proof dish and scatter across thyme. Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden on top.
