Gluten Free, Vegetarian Butter Beans Recipe

This is one of my favourite lunch options because it’s super easy on the tummy, yet tasty and soooo quick to make!


  • 2 cans butter beans
  • 2-4 big squirts tomato puree/ tomato paste
  • olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper and turmeric
  • 2 cloves garlic


This is the best recipe ever!

Takes only 5 minutes to make and tastes great. A clear life-saver meal when you just can’t be asked to prepare a meal and still want to eat something healthy.

This tasty dish is gluten free, vegetarian and very well suited for phase 3 of the candida diet. Give it a go and let me know what you think!

Makes 2 servings and a snack portion.


Chop & press the garlic and put aside (you want to add the garlic right at the end of cooking to keep the aroma and to stop it burning.)

Drain the beans over a colander and rinse properly. Fry the beans briefly in olive oil with a little turmeric, ginger spice, cayenne pepper and black pepper and a generous sprinkling of salt. Then add the garlic and tomato puree or mix in with the onion mix.

Heat through, then leave on low heat or fill into a preheated serving dish while you prepare the rest.

Serve your butter bean curry with toasted yeast-free Sesame Soda Bread and a big green salad.

Watch out, the beans will quickly lose their curried flavour when they cool down!


Butter bean curry makes an excellent pitta pocket filling with cheddar and egg or just on it’s own.


Serve the Butter bean Curry with Coconut Rice (brown rice cooked in salty water for 40 mins then added 1 tbl spoon of coconut or sesame oil – delicious!)

The amounts above should feed two people happily for two days. Use half if cooking for yourself.
Leftover onion mix works well with baked potato, chicken, fish, you name it.
