This is a good recipe for anyone who doesn't care for Lima beans. Lima beans never were my favorite vegetable, but I tried this recipe and the beans are very flavorful. Serve with some good cornbread and you can have a quick and easy lunch.

I have served this recipe to others who don't like Lima beans and they have always been pleasantly surprised. I make this recipe quite often now, and it always gets good reviews.


Yummy Lima Beans

1 tbsp olive oil
16 oz package frozen lima beans (either baby or fordhook)
1 1/2 cups mushroom broth (you can use vegetable broth if you can't find mushroom broth, or if you prefer vegetable broth)
1/2 cup diced onion (I like to use more, especially if I have Vidalia onions)
sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onions until soft in the olive oil. Pour in mushroom broth, and bring to a boil. Add lima beans, and enough water just to cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes, until beans are tender. Season with sea salt and pepper.

Sounds like a sweet idea. I love Lima beans, but the kids aren't too fond of them, maybe this will help!!

Sounds good, sorry I can't rep you. I've never heard of mushroom broth--do you have a recipe?

Oh....actually the mushroom broth I use is sold in cartons next to the organic vegetable broth in our local grocery store. The brand is Pacific, and it comes in 32 ounce cartons. It's also sold at Whole Foods.

You can use regular vegetable broth too, and sometimes I do. But I really love to use the mushroom broth in my recipes.
