Ingredients

12 oz
frozen lima beans (or equivalent amount of cooked fresh lima beans)
2 Tbsp
tahini
2 Tbsp
extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice, to taste
2 clove
garlic, peeled

1/4-1/2 c
reserved cooking liquid from the lima beans, or as much as desired to thin

Step-By-Step

1Cook lima beans according to package directions, drain and reserve ¼-1/2 cup of the cooking liquid. Note: to retain the nutrients and vitamins in the lima beans, I suggest lightly steaming.
2In a food processor, combine all ingredients *except* cooking liquid or water.

4Arrange on a bowl or platter. Serve with cut up grille baguette, pita or Arabic bread, matzo, etc.
