I am not a big fan of lima beans but I do like them in 'Calico Beans':

Sometimes we make it with pepperoni instead of the bacon and we usually make it with half the amount of ground beef (sometimes substitute lean ground turkey).

You could use them in succotash, or use them to make hummas or other forms of dips. Believe it or not, they do make a great dip!

3 cups lima beans

2 - 3 cloves of garlic

1/4 cup olive oil

juice from a small fresh lemon or lime

2 to 3 Tbs of plain thick yogurt

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

In a food processor puree the cooked beans and garlic together.

process in the yogurt, and lime or lemon juice

While machine is running, drizzle in olive oil and process smooth and creamy

Salt and fresh black pepper to taste

Serve with crackers, baguette etc

Correct seasoning if desired or if you want thinner, add in a bit more yogurt!

Experiment!

I prefer the frozen ones and have them often. For the canned ones, just heat, add butter and salt and pepper. I think they are delicious.

If lima beans are a favorite add them to salads.My husband loves them. I also add canned beets or canned kidney beans or canned chickpeas depending on what I have on hand.

I was looking up another recipe and found this one. Never heard of Bean Dip being made with Limas before.

You can always add them to soup recipes, casseroles. Substitute them for other beans in most recipes.

Try using them for a door stop. I say this because I believe GOD made a mistake when he created them.
