dried lima beans
heavy whipping cream
salt and ground black pepper to taste
I did not use the cream to reduce calories. I cooked the beans in chicken broth for 50 minues then added the sliced, sauted bacon with, 1/2 chopped red onion sauted in bacon grease, 6-8 chopped baby carrots, 3 stalks chopped celery and 2 tsp garlic finely diced,1 t Thyme & 1/2 t Marjoram. Another 25 minues until beans & veggies well done. Served with assorted crackers and fresh peeled, sliced tomatoes. My son ate three bowls!
