Recipe by Manami

Use frozen lima beans (10 oz package) if necessary. You can buy roasted garlic in a tube, which makes it easy to squeeze out the amount you want (I prefer roasting my own and then making the paste - more cost efficient.) You can find the tube in the spice section of the supermarket. Cooking Light Magazine, June 2008 edition.
