Ingredients & Directions

Recipe Ingredients


Yield: Butter Bean Scramble (1 Serving)
Needed Kitchenware: Mixing bowl, cooking pan
  • 15.5 oz butter beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp tumeric powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt, or salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp plant-based milk
  • Handful spring onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp olive oil
Recipe Directions


  • In a bowl, add the drained and rinsed butter beans. Mix in the turmeric, garlic, nutritional yeast, and salt. Add in the milk and then mash with a fork, leaving some chunks⁣.
  • Stir most of the spring onions through the mix, leaving some aside for garnish when serving.⁣
  • Heat a pan over medium heat with the 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Add in the butter bean mix and sauté for about 8-10 minutes until slightly caramelized and fragrant.
  • Assemble the breakfast bowl with your favorite sides! Suggestion as pictured: Add in some chopped cherry tomatoes and slices of toast. Top with the butter bean scramble with the spring onion garnish. Add some avocado slices and top them with sesame seeds.

Make this recipe oil-free by using a non-stick pan and omiting the oil. Use a lower heat on the pan to prevent the spices from burning and add a splash of more plant-based milk to help sauté if needed.

Make this recipe gluten-free by using gluten-free toast or omit the bread altogether.
