fresh organic butter beans atop brown Jasmine rice
The Tomato Shed Cafe, John's Island, serves the best homegrown butter beans. They bag and sell these fresh from their farm. Here's my cooked version:
1 lb. fresh green butter beans
1 small onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 celery ribs, chopped
2 Tbsp. Earth Balance
salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
cooked brown Jasmine rice
Saute the onions, carrots and celery in a small am't of veggie broth. Cook till slightly tender.
Add veggie broth to barely cover (add more later if necessary) and the Earth Balance. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes. (fork tender but not falling apart)
When tender, add the salt and pepper to taste.
Serve over the cooked brown Jasmine rice.
drain and rinse before cooking
