Got this recipe sent in...

Hi Alistair, I have included the various datails about Butter Bean soup:


Ingredients:
Whole packet of split peas
Two onions
One tin of Butter Beans
Two chicken cubes
One bulb of garlic


Recipe:
Put chopped onions in lots of water and put on low gas
Add bag of split peas shortly after
Put lid on pot and leave to simmer, but keep an eye on it and stir when needed to avoid peas sticking
After going to pulp add two chicken cubes and one bulb of garlic
Then add one tin of Butter Beans and stir for a few times

One of the most interesting functions:


Soluble fibre binds to bile acids that form cholesterol, and because that isn't absorbed in the intestines it exits the body taking the bile acids with it, thus blood cholesterol is lowered.

I hope this will be useful.
