fresh lima beans.....

baltoellen | Sep 24, 2007 08:28 AM

....I don't even like lima beans, but ate at a good ole home cookin' kinda place on Saturday, and they had lima bean soup, and, to my surprise, it was great.

So, I bought fresh, shelled lima beans at my farmers' market on Sunday. Now, I just need to know what to do with them.

I've searched for recipes, but really haven't found what I'm looking for, which is, sort of a down home tomato-based lima bean soup recipe, one that would be hearty enough to support a dumpling or two.

If anyone has a recipe for this, or can direct me to a place that does, I'd really appreciate it.

Many thanks.
