Blistered Butter Beans with Tomatoes, Walnuts & Thyme

Prep Time 2 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 17 mins


  • Olive oil
  • 1 can butter beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 garlic clove thinly sliced
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes halved if larger than the size of a marble
  • Fleur de sel
  • Few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • Handful of toasted walnuts roughly chopped


  • Add a swirl of oil to an 8-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beans to the pan, and cook, shaking every few minutes, until the beans begin to turn golden and blistered, about 10 minutes. Add more oil as needed if the beans begin to look too dry.
  • Add the garlic and tomatoes. Season with salt. Cook until the tomatoes soften, and look like they're going to burst, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add the thyme, and give the pan a shake. Divide between two dishes, and sprinkle walnuts on top before serving.
