Lima Beans - Just Can't Ever Get Enough


I realize I have written about Alicia's Summertime Succotash before. The last time I cheated and used butter beans. I'm pretty sure my body is mad at me for not eating lima beans my whole life. I love them so much! I think they nearly top the favorite bean list for me personally. Last year I scored some fresh lima beans at the market. The same vendor said they wouldn't be growing them again this year as they couldn't move them. Travesty! Fresh limas are astonishingly good. These, albeit frozen, are still very good. Apparently I'm one of the few who does actually like lima beans. Poor me. Anyway, I love this recipe. It's so easy to throw together. I had a few bell peppers I used instead of tomatoes this time. The possibilities are endless!

I'm right there with you - It took me a few years, but I now love lima beans! Such a unique and delicious flavor :)

I love lima beans too, and I recently discovered the joy of roasted frozen limas with olive oil and garlic. I have a countertop oven I use, so my kitchen doesn't get too very hot. They get crispy on the outside, but still buttery and yummy on the inside.

I have never roasted them! That sounds delicious and easy :) I'm so going to do that.
