    This recipe looks wonderful. I couldn’t find butter beans so got a can of white kidney beans, which I think are cannellini. There was only one size, and it is quite large. When you say half a can, are you able to give a more precise measurement?

      Hi Irene, Cannellini beans are perfect for this recipe as well. The beauty of this recipe is you can be really relaxed with the measurements. You may prefer to add more or less. So try it, maybe add more seasoning or even lemon. But to answer your question half a can is approximately is about 200g. Hope this helps. Sharon xx

    Are the dill & the parsley fresh or dried?

      Yes Jerri they are fresh. Just pop them into the food processor and they’ll blend in really well and enhance the flavour. So good for you. Enjoy. Sharon xx
