Steps to make Asparagus and Braised Butter Beans


Cook onions


In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and add the onions with a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 3 minutes.


Add parsley stalks, chili, and garlic


Add the finely chopped parsley stalks, 1 diced chili pepper, and 4 minced garlic cloves and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.


Add beans and nutritional yeast


Add the butter beans (with their liquid if jarred) and 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast. Add a few tablespoons of water if not using the bean liquid. Simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, adding more water to loosen if needed.


Blanch asparagus


Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and add the asparagus. Boil for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender, then remove and pass under cold running water for 10 seconds.


Season asparagus


Pat dry the cooked asparagus and season with salt, black pepper, 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Set aside.


Add coconut aminos, lemon juice and zest, and parsley leaves


To the beans, add 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, lemon juice and zest, and a handful of chopped parsley. Taste and season with salt and black pepper. Stir to combine and remove from the heat.



To serve, ladle the beans into bowls and top with asparagus. Garnish with grated vegan Parmesan and serve.
