Recipe by ladypit

A low-fat vegetarian sandwich spread that I have never tried but always meant to! From Sarah Schlesinger's "500 Fat Free Recipes." The cook time is actually the chill time.

Amazing. I omitted the peppers (due to food allergies) and my kids aren't fond of red onions, so I just let each person add their own. It was great in a roll-up with spinach, cucumbers, and fresh tomatoes. I used frozen limas, and I did have to add a little bit of water to make it spreadable.
