    Chef shapeweaver �'s Note:

    If you are looking for a way to fix lima beans besides boiling them in water try this recipe. I don't think you'll be sorry you tried them. :) If you want to have more of a buttery flavor,remove the beans from the liquid and place into a bowl then add the final 2 Tablespoons of butter and then salt and pepper to taste. I saw the basic recipe on allrecipes.com which was posted to that site by SharonB13.The name is the same as her's, but I changed a few things to the recipe and decided to post it under my own name.Submitted to Food.com ( A.K.A.

      I've never just "boiled" lima beans, but I've never cooked them with onions and chicken broth either! Delicious. I used some lima beans that I got fresh in the late summer, then froze myself. They were wonderful. Thanks for sharing! Made for 123 Hits Tag.

      My Husband and I loved this recipe !!! I used 3/4 cup of chicken broth and 2 cans drained lima beans instead of frozen. It was easy and delicious. Thank you for the recipe.

      Ah, the poor, under-rated Lima Bean. :( Well, in OUR household, they sure are loved!) Saw this recipe and a great photo posted over at Kittencal's site and knew it must be made within the week. Just served it with roasted chicken and sweet potato wedges and five people gave it a "Two thumb's Up!" Simple, easy, tasty, healthy, inexpensive...what's not to love??? GREAT recipe, Chef Shapeweaver!
