This is another of the recipes I have collected in my attempt to find healthier recipes. I am saving it for my next party. Usually it is fairly easy to translate British recipes so that they make sense to folks in the United States. However, sometimes you run into a food item that is more difficult to translate. In the case of this recipe the difficulty lies with 'butter beans' which can apparently mean different things in the States vs the UK. So, for this recipe, butter beans mean the variety of bean that is like a white lima bean. This recipe was first published in the September 2006 issue of the British version of Weight Watchers Magazine. The recipe says it can be frozen.
