Paprika Butter Beans

Paprika Butter Beans

Paprika Butter Beans in this version is one of the simplest vegan versions of a traditional Czech dish (which usually uses chicken). I made this for a quick lunch today, as I had some leftover cooked butter beans in the fridge. If I had any vegan cream in the fridge, I would have added it too.

To make a complete meal, combine with cooked grain, raw and cooked vegetables, and garnish with toasted seeds and fresh herbs. Here I have used white basmati rice with red quinoa, nishime style carrot and spring greens, little gem lettuce, pumpkin seeds and parsley.
