You know how some people have a bowl of nuts that sit on the counter? Or maybe a bowl of M&Ms, if you’re lucky? I remember my friend’s parents always having a bowl of cashews on their counter and I used to eat them until I was sick. Probably why I have a nut intolerance these days. That and the fact I used to eat almost a jar of almond butter every day. Were you around for those days of PaleOMG? Lots of almond butter talk back then. Well anyways, I like to have a bowl of beans ready for me at any moment. When you’re trying to eat more beans to keep your digestive track rocking, your skin glowing, and your nails growing – well you gotta have beans ready to go at all times. And these are the type of beans that just get better the longer they sit, like chili…or brownies. Not sure if brownies actually make sense here, but how good are brownies throughout the week? I mean, they never get old. Now I wish I had some brownies. But I guess it’s beans for me, instead!

PaleOMG Marinated Butter Beans

Today has been such a weird day for me. I’m normally a person who wakes up ready to go by 6am and ready to work. But today hit me like a freight train. The week finally caught up to me and my body is pushing back. All day it’s been telling me to chill TF out. So you know what I did? I obliged. And I’ve watched 8 episodes of Ginny & Georgia instead of doing everything on my to-do list. And you know what? IT’S BEEN AMAZING! But I did manage to peel myself off the couch to make this recipe for you. It’s so easy that you can make it on a day you want to do absolutely nothing. I’ve been making this butter beans recipe for months now and I buy butter beans in packs of 12 cans so I can make them whenever I want. It’s a great side dish or snack. And it helps you get that fiber in, baby! If you ain’t getting that fiber in, you ain’t living right. Ok, I’ll stop saying ain’t. But learn from my mistakes – eat your beans and get ready to become the healthiest version of yourself. Fiber is KING! And speaking of fiber, it’s dinner time so I think I’m going to order some Mediterranean food, load my face with hummus, and finish this season of Ginny & Georgia. I’m hooked!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Should this say 1 teaspoon of salt instead of 1 tablespoon?? Way way too salty, wish I had tasted tested first.

    1. yes, coarse salt! i wouldn’t have written it as coarse salt if I had use fine. the * is to mention that I added a bit more fine salt afterwards to fit my taste preference

  2. Only had fine salt, so 1T ended up too salty… just added another can of beans to the mix and it was good to go! Love having this in the fridge throughout the week.

  3. I’m pretty much not a fan of beans (but yet I’m on the BP and noticing amazing results) so more recipes like this one please! Fast, easy, and delish.

    1. love it, proud of you for doing the protocol even when you’re not a big fan of beans. I recommend heading to the top of my page where it says Recipes and check out my Beans tag so you can try more bean recipes you might like!

    I just made this recipe and I subbed Great Northern Beans since I couldn’t find organic butter beans and it is incredible!!! Will definitely be making this a regular recipe for over salads and as a side dish.

    1. perfect sub! i buy my organic butter beans on Amazon! They are Eden Organics brand, just in case you want them in the future! I find them almost impossible to find in stores

  5. YUM! I followed the recipe to a tee and this dish is absolutely DELISH! Super simple and quick to make – perfect for meal prep for the week. Can’t wait to serve it up in my personal favorite – bowl meals! Thanks, Juli!

    1. this isn’t a bean protocol specific recipe, it’s just a bean recipe. if your goal is to clear acne, removing fat from your bean consumption is definitely improtant!

    2. It depends on what you’re trying to improve. If it’s hormonal, you want to remove fat. If it’s gut related like it is for me, you want fat. (I took a few of Karen Hurd’s eCourses so that’s the only reason I know this. 🙂

  6. OMG, this was so good. My bean-hating husband finished off the bowl before I could have 2nds!

  7. I love this recipe! So simple and flavour-packed. I subbed in coriander for dill (I had a bunch leftover from a previous recipe) and only used 1tsp of salt. So happy with the way this turned out!

  8. So delicious! I’m looking forward to having a bowl of these beans in my fridge the whole summer.

    Wow, just wow! I’m so glad you found beans. I enjoy your recipes but am now loving your bean recipes! This one is freaking delicious, full of summer flavors, full of so much healthy goodness, beautiful to look at, and dare I say, sexy! These are going to be in my fridge all. the. time. Thanks so, so much!
