What do you do with a Lima Bean?

I bought a large bag of fresh shelled organic lima beans at the Farmer’s Market.

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them, but decided since they were in season I’d buy them and figure it out later.

I searched The Gourmet Cookbook by Ruth Reichl and found  Herbed Lima Bean Hummus.


It was as delicious as it was easy.

I also suggest that if you don’t have this cookbook, you should.

Buy it here: www.amazon.com

I consult it on a regular basic  for inspiration when I don’t know what to do with a particular item of food.

Happy Cooking!
