"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!"
"Delicious!! The curry, bacon, onions, and mushrooms combine together to compliment the lima beans perfectly. Since my family loves all of these ingredients, I knew these beans would be a big hit and it was...they devoured them. I made this recipe as written, using thick-sliced black pepper bacon and 6 large mushrooms. The recipe instructions were well written and easy to follow. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!! *Made for 2008 Football Pool*"
"Lima beans are my very favorite vegetable in the world and this recipe is now my all-time favorite way to prepare them. I usually just have them plain, but this recipe has changed that. I do have to admit I only used about 1/4 t of the curry powder because I am not a big fan of that, but the other reviewers said it was a must so I compromised. I will definitely be making this recipe again. It's wonderful! Made for the Aussie/New Zealand Recipe Swap#19."
"I also enjoyed these very much. Wonderful taste blending, and nice look too. I will say that I didn't enjoy them nearly as much re-heated. But I don't think there will ever be many to re-heat anyway. Thanks for a new keeper."
"These were wonderful. Even my 4 and 5 year old sons ate them. I'll *definitely* make these again and again!!"
"Simply wonderful. I will never make lima beans any other way. I added some fresh cracked pepper too. I will try this sauce with other beans too in the future. Thanks so much twissis!"
"These were wonderful! The flavor of them is exotic, like an Indian curry and very creamy from the sour cream. And the bacon gives it that extra touch that puts it over the top. Thanks so much for posting!"
"There are the only way I make lima beans now. They are THAT good! I skipped the bacon and it still came out good."
"Oh this is the lima bean recipe of the season. Eat em' in the summer, freeze em' and put this together in the winter. THIS is the recipe you will want. I didn't change anything about this recipe and followed to a "Tee" The curry is a must, gives a wonderful "background" taste that only curry can do. My button mushrooms turned out beautifully, and the bacon also a must. I would suspect that you can interchange the bacon if you want to turkey bacon, or vegetarian bacon, but I prefer the real thing. Thanks, twissis will be making this often."
"I loved these lima beans as did my whole family! I didn't have any curry powder or sour cream, so I used garlic, salt and pepper and they were still very tasty. I love curry so I'll have to pick some up and try the original recipe as well. Thank you twissis for this comforting dish."
"okay, these were the best lima beans I've ever tasted. My father loves lima beans and out of all things he specifically requested lima beans on his birthday. Over the years, I've grown to despise lima beans. I needed something different. These lima beans were a great change and so good. When I was cooking them I couldn't stop tasting them. I ended up adding a bit more curry and bacon, but overall I recommened everyone try this recipe once. Thanks Twissis!"
"You're right - they were the best! DH refuses to eat curry so after cooking, I split the dish & curried mine. Just perfect! Thanks!"
"This is a lovely side dish. Looks good on the table and taste great. I chose this recipe for PAC Spring 2006. This dish would be nice for a "bring a dish" event. Thanks twissis for a new fancier lima bean dish."
"Excellent! Hubby does not like mushrooms so I left them out, but otherwise I followed the directions. This was creamy, comforting, but just different enough to not be your plain ol butterbeans."
"Very tasty! The only change I made was leaving the curry out, as I didn't have any. I added about 1 t. Lantana seasoning salt. Will definitly make again. Thanks twissis!"
