Recipe by Chef John
"Rocket is another name for arugula. I love to use it as an herb, but don't buy it in the herb section of the supermarket; buy it in the lettuce section. This is an incredibly fast, incredibly simple, but satisfying rustic bean side dish."

bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
1 (15 ounce) jar
butter beans, drained and rinsed
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
arugula, coarsely chopped
Way too much lemon for my liking. It's a great recipe otherwise, and I will make it again. Thank you.
This was awesome! I don't like Lima beans however these were delicious, with hints of smokey, tangy and salty. I am on a slow carb diet and these are a perfect addition to it. Yum! One note of caution, only cook the beans the 3 minutes before adding the arugula other wise they will start to mash while waiting for the arugula to wilt. The bacon I bought had 12 slices which I also cut up and put into 2 additional plastic bags for more meals.
So fast and delicious! I actually forgot to sprinkle the lemon juice on at the end, and it was still amazing. I'll remember next time. I added a shake of Parmesan cheese. Family loved it!
I didn't change a thing in the recipe, however I did make it way to soon and had to reheat and because of that it wasn't as pretty, but it was still fantastic! I will make these again and again!
