My husbands favorite dish, I make this often for Sunday dinner and we serve it often as a side dish with roast and gravy. We eat it over white steamed rice.

My mother in law made this often so it is a cajun comfort food to us. Low in calories but high in protien and good for you.

I also cook dry navy beans this same way. Enjoy!

Serves:

6 - 8

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr 45 Min

Ingredients

16 oz
package of dry small lima beans
6 Tbsp
baking soda
3/4 c
yellow onions, chopped
1 Tbsp
salt and pepper
1 Tbsp
finely chopped garlic
1 lb
beef sausage in casing

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium sauce pan put beans and baking soda and cover with water.
2
Bring to a rapid boil then remove from the stove and rinse beans in cold water, removing all baking soda. This step eliminates having to soak the beans overnight.
3
Put beans, onions, garlic and salt & pepper in a medium sauce pan and cover with water.
4
Cut sausage into 2" pieces and add to pot. Bring water to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Continue to simmer until beans are cooked, adding water as needed to keep the beans from sticking.
5
Watch beans closely as the water will cook down quickly and you will need to replenish it often. Beans should be soupy when finished.
