Bright Butter Bean Puree with Roasted Vegetables

By Maria Lobo - Creative Healthy Recipes -

This butter bean puree is one of my favourite healthy recipes and it has so much flavour! Beans are nutritional powerhouses packed with protein, fibre, B vitamins, iron and potassium. Best of all they’re incredibly inexpensive. I serve this with roasted vegetables, but you can also have it accompanied with grilled salmon or chicken.

This recipe is gluten-free and vegetarian. It’s also the perfect dish for diabetics (no added sugar and low GI), people working out (as high in protein and low GI) and people on a calorie restricted diet for certain conditions e.g heart disease
