Best Lima Beans You'll Ever Eat!

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by twissis

I got this recipe yrs ago from a friend who served this dish at a dinner party & it got rave reviews. When you want to impress or convince a lima bean non-believer, this is the recipe for you. There are only a few lima bean recipes at this site compared to other veggies. This 1 is an easy to prepare stovetop-to-table dish & spectacular with any meat or chicken entree not combined with a cream sauce. Enjoy!

Fantastic recipe! Words do not describe how good these are. I could have eaten only these for dinner. Next time I'll double the recipe so I have leftovers. The curry is not at all overpowering but adds a distinctive flavor that shouldn't be skipped. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook frozen lima beans per pkg directions while following remaining steps & set aside.
  2. Roughly dice the medium onion & set aside.
  3. Cut each large mushroom in half from top down through any stem. Put the cut edge down on your cutting board & slice each half in approx 1/3 inch slices & set aside.
  4. Cut bacon slices in 1/2 inch segments & fry in a non-stick skillet until crisp. If you have more than 2 tbsp of rendered bacon fat grease, remove the excess of that amount.
  5. Add diced onion & sliced mushrooms to skillet & saute until onion is translucent. Do not overcook to carmelized state.
  6. Add 1 tsp curry powder + low-fat sour cream & combine well.
  7. Taste & add additional curry powder or seasoning salt to your preferences.
  8. Remove skillet from heat, add cooked lima beans, mix well & serve immediately.
  9. Note: My advice is to plan for 2nd helpings. You'll need them!
