Lima Bean Recipes
Vickie Said:Butter Bean/Lima Bean Recipe?
We Answered:These are just so perfect. Creamy, buttery, and smooth. If you have fresh baby Lima beans, all the better, but frozen are just fine.
16 ounces frozen baby Lima beans
1/2 to 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons butter
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Cook the Lima beans in boiling salted water as directed on package. I sometimes add about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of sugar to the cooking water.
Drain well. Add the cream and butter. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired.
