Inspired by Deliciously Ella: Warming Pesto Butter Beans

This recipe is just too good to not share it with you – Deliciously Ella has created yet another masterpiece! Inspired by her Warming Pesto Butter Beans recipe, we share this quick and easy recipe with you.

She says: “A favourite recipe from my blog, which I hope you’ll love. It’s incredibly simple but very addictive; the first time I made this I cooked it four or five times in the next two weeks! There’s just something about the mix of soft, buttery beans smothered in home-made pesto with sautéed spinach, crunchy pumpkin seeds and sweet, juicy pomegranates that I can’t get enough of.”

100g Spinach
Juice of 1 Lemon
Handful of Pumpkin Seeds
Sprinkling of Pomegranate Seeds (30g)


1. Place the beans in a frying pan with the spinach and pesto and sauta everything in a splash of olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes until the spinach has wilted and everything is warm.

2. While they cook, squeeze the lemon for the salad over the beans and add more black pepper.

3. Place the pesto beans and spinach into a bowl and sprinkle the pumpkin and pomegranate seeds over the top.

4. Tweak It – In hot weather, swap the wilted spinach for fresh rocket and serve this as a cold salad.
