Dried lima beans

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Dried lima beans, soaked overnight
1 medium Onion, chopped
1 large Carrot diced
¼ teaspoon Liquid smoke (up to 1/2)

Dried beans are an excellent source of protien and other nutrients.

However, many bean recipies I have ask for some type of meat product to be cooked with the beans. One of my favorite dried beans is the large dried lima beans. I modified the original receipe and, I believe, have recreated the original flavor with no fat.

Put all ingredients except liquid smoke in a crockpot and add enough water to cover the beans by about ½ inch. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours (the actual time doesn't make a lot of difference). Just before serving, add the liquid smoke (I find if I add it in the beginning the flavor cooks out).

Add additional water to adjust thickness of the broth.

Serve with homemade ff cornbread. Enjoy! Posted to fatfree digest V97 #006 by Elrond Halfelven <elrond@...> on Feb 22, 1997.
