Butter Beans with Roasted Tomatoes

This is a simple, comforting peasant side dish/appetizer that can be quickly and cheaply transformed into a whole meal by adding pasta. Simply toss the bean-tomato mixture with a pound of freshly-cooked linguine or spaghetti, toss with more Parmesan and parsley and easily serve at least 4 people.

Personally, I like to eat the bean mixture on its own, hot with either a spoon or crusty bread for dipping.

  • ingredients
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus more for finishing Pantry
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped Pantry
  • 1/2 onion, chopped $0.50 for a whole onion
  • 1 can fire-roasted chopped tomatoes $2
  • 1 can butter beans, drained and rinsed $1.50
  • 1 handful fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped, plus more for garnish $1 for a bunch
  • 1/8 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish $3.50 for 12 oz.
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
Total Cost of Ingredients $8.50


Heat oil over medium-low heat in a medium frying pan (make sure it has a fitted lid). Add the garlic and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 7-8 minutes, until soft and very fragrant.

Add the tomatoes (and the juice that comes with them) and 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook for 5-6 minutes, until slightly reduced.

Add the beans, cover and cook for another 5-6 minutes, until heated through. Stir in the parsley, Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon into serving bowls and garnish with more olive oil, parsley and Parmesan.

Serves 2.

My aunt gave me a jar of butter beans in tomato sauce as a gag gift, because we both thought they looked so freaky and weird.
Now that I know people actually eat them I won’t be so afraid to open that jar.
