This recipe can be made year round using frozen lima beans, but the fresh beans have a creamy texture and appealing flavor that is unmistakably better.

Step-by-Step

  1. Bring the lima beans and 1 inch of water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until tender, 5 minutes for frozen beans. Drain and set aside.
