Today I thought I’d show you another one of my favourite cheap, quick, easy and yummy meals to make!
I’d never had butterbeans until about a year ago, but I love them now! All in all (assuming you have the store cupboard staples: rice, garlic, herbs) this costs less than £1 to make for 2 meals! :O
I apologise for the quality of the photos, one of my flatmates was in the kitchen at the same time and was looking at me weird for taking photos!
1 Onion (I have 2 here as I love onions and they’re quite small)
2 cloves garlic
1 tin butter beans (drained)
1 tin chopped tomatoes
Some tomato puree
Rice (to serve)
- Chop the onion and crush the garlic and add to a pan with a little oil. Lightly fry until the onion is soft.
- At the same time, set a pan of water boiling for the rice, and cook the rice.
- Once soft, add the chopped tomatoes, butter beans, herbs, and tomato puree and simmer until the rice is cooked. And there we have it, a quick simple and yummy meal, which I serve with rice (and I had a naan bread in the freezer which needed using and I really fancied it so I had that with it too yesterday) .
