Butter Beans Curry

Butter Beans Curry

A simple nourishing bowl of vegan protein. This versatile butter beans curry recipe is adaptable to kidney beans, black eyed beans, black beans, cannellini beans and runner beans – simply choose your preferred source of vegan protein and follow the recipe!

My other bean curry recipes include: Kidney Bean Curry and Black Eyed Beans Curry. All of my bean curry recipes are an excellent source of vegan protein.

This curry is a great source of protein (provided by the butter beans) and is vegan, so everyone can enjoy this delicious meal. Made with a variety of rich spices, like turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, garam masala and chilli powder, this curry is packed with flavour. Here’s a tip: to get my curry tasting as fresh and delicious as possible without spending time chopping up ingredients, I used Mr Organic Italian Organic Chopped Tomatoes.

My bean-based curry recipes are quick, easy and great if you’re in need of a protein filled main meal. If you’re looking for a curry with a bit of crunch, my Puy Lentil Curry with Avocado & Chevdo uses “chevdo” (a crunchy Indian savoury snack) to add an unexpected twist to traditional curry.
