  1. You know, I'm right there with you on lima beans. I have horrific memories of having to eat these as a child. Yuck! I'm going to have to give these a try. We're always looking for new dishes – especially meatless ones. Thank you for sharing.

    • I have horrific memories of having to eat them as a child too! HA! Since we started doing Meatless Monday's, we have been forced to try new things ….. I really am surprised by some of the stuff I thought I didn't like and maybe it was just the way it was prepared before? I think I may try this with black beans next time and make it like a southwest-style burger. 😉

    • I've looked many places for recipes for butter beans. I found some cans on clearance at our market.. and had no idea what to do with them. We'll definitely be trying these, since we're forced to live out of our pantry this week. Thank you for the recipe!

  2. They look yummy! Maybe we can disguise the lima beans so our husbands and children will eat them. We are so glad you joined our "Strut Your Stuff Saturday". We love to see all of the great recipes and ideas!! Thanks and we hope to see you again next week! -The Sisters

  3. I learned to LOVE Butter Beans since moving to Greece 21 years ago. I soak them over night. I simmer them until they are about half done, I add a large chopped onion, a can of chopped tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. I then put them in a baking pan and let them finish cooking on medium heat. I serve them with Feta, olives and bread. It is one of the tastiest meals I eat. I sometimes wonder how I lived without them. I liked reading your bean story and I am going to try your recipe.
