1 (16 ounce) package
dried lima beans
salt to taste
shredded mozzarella cheese
grated Parmesan cheese
This recipe is very good, however the Lima Beans are bland and Mozzarella cheese is too. We really enjoyed the chicken layer. The next time I make it I will try and stronger tasting cheese. If anyone has come up with a better idea I'd love to hear it too. I'm suprised at the number of Calories listed in this recipe.
When pureeing the lima beans, I added 1 tsp. cumin, salt to taste, dash cayenne pepper, about 3 tbs. of olive oil, and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese. I also added 1 cup cooked cauliflower to increase the quantity.
