Beans with Butter
Cooked, photographed and written down by chef Thomas Sixt.
Simple instructions for the preparation of butter beans.
|Salt (I use Himalayan salt)
Wash and dry the beans and cut off the ends.
Prepare the beans for blanching.
Place a pot of water on top and bring to the boil.
Season the water with salt.
Place the beans in the boiling water and blanch until al dente.
Then cool the cooked beans in cold water.
Water with ice cubes is ideal.
Place the beans on a sieve to drain.
Foam the butter in a saucepan.
I always do this with two packets of butter, so I have pure butterfat or ghee or browned nut butter in stock.
Nut butter prepared
Pass the browned butter through a stainless steel hair sieve and make ready.
Heat the prepared, blanched and cooled beans in the nut butter shortly before serving, season to taste with salt and pepper.
Arrange the butter beans and serve quickly.
Enjoy your meal!
The preparation of homemade nut butter should be done every two weeks.
I then fill my homemade, tanned ghee into a screw glass and put the clarified butter in the fridge.
So I always have the delicious fat at hand.

3. Tipps for Preparing Butter Beans
- After removing the ends, cook the beans in boiling salted water until al dente and then in ice water.
- The green colour of the bean is retained by the rapid cooling.
- Foam the butter in a saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes. Then lightly brown and pass through a fine sieve. You need a stainless steel hair sieve because the butter is very hot.
- The browned butter is also called nut butter and is preferred in star restaurants.
- Nut butter makes a special dish out of your beans!
- Just before serving, swivel the blanched beans in the nut butter and heat them up.
- Season with salt and pepper and serve.
