We’ve chosen to use butter beans in this recipe for no other reason than, we love them. We can’t get enough of them. However, you could of course use other beans, like Cannelini or Borlotti.
We like to use good quality chopped tomatoes in this recipe. We find cheaper tins can be a little watery and acidic. Of course you could always use a few chopped up fresh tomatoes if you prefer, or cheaper tins with a little tomato puree added will work in a pinch!
