Drain and rinse the butter beans and place in a mixing bowl. Chop the tomatoes and add to the beans. Place the chilli, basil (reserving a few small leaves) garlic, olive oil and vinegar in the small bowl of a food processor then whizz until smooth. Add to the tomatoes and beans, season and mix. Serve scattered with a few small leaves.
To peel tomatoes easily, make a small cross in the base and tip them into a bowl. Pour hot water from a kettle over them and leave for 10 secs. Remove, then when cool enough to handle, slip off the skins.
