Seasonal recipes: 5 for lima beans
Garlicky Butter Bean Dip – This hummus-like dip uses lima beans (also known as butter beans) instead of chickpeas as its base. The recipe calls for a can of beans, probably a 15 oz. can, but you can substitute an equal amount of fresh beans that have been cooked and it will probably make a better dip.
