DIRECTIONS

  • Soak lima beans in cold water overnight. Drain the lima beans and rinse in several changes of water to float away as many loosened shells as possible.
  • Place beans in crockpot with 8 cups fresh water, the chopped onion, carrot, garlic and bouillon cube. Cover tightly and cook 18 to 24 hours on low until beans are very tender.
  • Remove from heat and let cool a little.
  • In the meantime, heat the butter in a skillet and saute the finely diced onion until it is very brown.
  • Ladle a small amount of soup at a time into blender or bowl of a food processor and puree until all soup is pureed. Return to pot and stir in browned onions. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper to taste.
