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!

How to Make Lima Beans and Sausage

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.
