Butter Beans

These large white beans are a common addition to stews and casseroles and are otherwise known as lima beans. This type of bean is a good source of dietary fiber and is high in protein. They must be thoroughly cooked to prevent sickness as the toxin phytohaemagglutinin is present in butter beans. Tinned butter beans carry less risk of this due to the pre-cooking process.
