butter bean saladrating:
for the butter beans, either just open a can, or do what I do - buy them dried, soak and boil them. Try not to leave them until you find them in the back of the cupboard, *seven years* past their sell-by date. They were ok, though.
dice a red pepper and some cucumber, and place in a decent sized bowl. Finely chop some spring onions and add.
take some seeds - we did pumpkin, sunflower and sesame - and dry fry. When they're sufficiently toasty, add some soy sauce. When cool (moments), add to the salad bowl.
then bung in some butter beans. I made a dressing of some more soy and a bit of walnut oil, and we scoffed it with steamed new spuds. Very nice.
