Slice the onion into thin rings, peel and crush the garlic. In a large pot heat the olive oil once hot add onion and garlic cook until translucent. Add chili, smoked paprika, cumin, nutritional yeast & salt, fry for a minute allowing the spices to become fragrant then add tomato paste and crushed tomatoes stir well. Drain and rinse the butter beans then stir into the tomato sauce. Lower the heat of the element leaving the beans to simmer for 15 minutes stirring occasionally making sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Once the tomato sauce has thickened it is ready to serve!!  

Serving – we love to pair out smokey butter beans with toast, hummus, fresh spring onion and extra chili flakes.
