onion, finely chopped
1 1/2 cups
1 (16 ounce) package
frozen baby lima beans
I don't care for lima beans, but my husband requested them as a side for dinner last night. I found this recipe, made it, and I am converted to a lima bean lover! I used regular lima beans (frozen) since that's what we had and I sauteed the onion in butter. I only simmered the beans for 15 minutes and they turned out so creamy on the inside and delicious. We'll be having this again soon!
good but kind of bland
These lima beans were outstanding. I did add pepper and garlic powder so a little seasoning. I usually boil mine in water, butter, and brown sugar. I thought I would try something different since I'm trying to cut out on sugars. We all loved this recipe SOOOO much! This will be the only way I make them from now on! Thanks for an awesome recipe!
I didn't quite make this recipie as stated, but I am sure it would be great. I didn't add any onion, as I didn't have any on hand. But would also be great with onion. I also added 1 tbsp of butter, just for butter's sake. Next time I will make it without butter, for a lowfat dish. It did need a dash of salt and pepper for seasonigs. I will make these nice, moist, flavorful beans again.
My son hates lima beans, but loved this recipe. I used olive oil instead of cooking spray and also added 1 clove of garlic.
I am NOT a green vegetable fan, but my father in law loves limas. So when he asked for them for his birthday dinner, I came right to this site. And as usual, it didn't let me down! This recipe was wonderful-- easy and very tasty. I think I ate more than my FIL! The only deviation I made was I sauteed the onion in bacon grease and added butter before serving. No wonder I liked them! Seriously, easy and good.
this was easy and simple. i used fresh baby limas and half a vidallia onion and real butter and added fresh okra as well served this with pig-butt , mac and cheese and fresh maters. very nice southern meal. thx.
Really good, but the little onions weren't great while eating the beans. I would suggesting keeping them in large chucks and then straining out before serving.
