Simple and delicious. Adding the lemon really upgrades the butter beans...

needs way more parsley. I used 2 big bunches

very sure not to put in too much seasoning though (pepper especially). i used chicken salt, salt and black & red pepper. i suggest using a larger amount of parsley than it says, rather than a small bunch.
