Sweet in flavor and buttery in texture, butter beans are frequently used in Mediterranean cooking and are packed with fiber. Also known as lima beans, these large, brown legumes are common in classic Southern cuisine, from succotash to soup. Cook lima beans with bacon for a traditional Southern side dish, or make protein-rich vegetarian meals such as chili, soups, and stews. For an Italian twist, serve butter beans with minced garlic and olive oil to make a traditional vegetarian side dish. You can find canned butter beans from Spain and Italy at Supermarket Italy, and shop other varieties of Italian beans, all delivered to your door through our online grocery.
