Carrot-Butter Bean Bread with Lemon Glaze

Yes, I'm still trying recipes with hidden beans. This carrot bread is moist and delicious, and very nutritious.


1 1/2 cup butter beans (one can)
1/3 cup Silk vanilla soymilk
1 1/2 cups grated carrots
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup Smart Balance oil
1 egg
1 egg white
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp ground flax seed
1/3 cup soy flour
3/4 cup bread flour


1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup powdered sugar


Puree the butter beans and vanilla soymilk in a blender or food processor.

In a large mixing bowl, combine carrots, sugar, oil, egg and egg whites, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and flax seed. Mix in bean mixture and flour. Mix well.

Pour into a large, greased loaf pan. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clear.

Allow loaf to cool completely.

In a small bowl mix lemon zest and lemon juice. Stir in enough of the powdered sugar to make a glaze consistency. Drizzle over top of loaf.
