Servings: 1 for dinner, 2 for lunch


  • 400g tin of butter beans, drained
  • 100ml of double cream
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • large knob of salted butter
  • small clove of garlic, crushed
  • small bunch of fresh chives, chopped
  • sea salt
  • a mix of mushrooms, torn into different sized pieces, I used shitake and chestnut
  • 1 fresh lemon


Heat some olive oil and the butter in a large frying pan and gently cook the garlic without browning it. Then throw in the mushrooms and some sea salt, and leave to softly sizzle.

Mean time, heat the butter beans and double cream with some salt then blend to a mash using a food processor or stick blender. You can make them as smooth or rugged as you like.

Now the mushrooms have softened and cooked through turn up the heat so they get nicely brown with some caramel’y bits then add most of the snipped chives.

To serve, plate up the mash and top with the garlicky mushrooms, throw on the remaining chives, some extra olive oil and a good squeeze of fresh lemon.

This is beautiful with wilted spinach or even some fried baby tomatoes.
