How to Make Lima Bean Hummus


  1. Cook 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.
  2. In a food processor, combine all ingredients *except* cooking liquid or water.
  3. Purée until smooth, gradually adding cooking liquid as desired to thin dip; scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
  4. Arrange on a bowl or platter. Serve with cut up grille baguette, pita or Arabic bread, matzo, etc.
