That was during my early on days of exploring vegetarian nutrient as well as cooking. Since then, my cooking skills select strengthened as well as my cognition as well as palate are to a greater extent than refined, as well as this recipe sure proved to me that oft when nosotros intend nosotros don't similar sure foods, it is because of how they select been prepared as well as served. Lima beans or giant lima beans — gigantes — select joined the ranks amongst the other dried legumes inwards my kitchen.

I've shared this dish earlier on this infinite but made a few fry changes to the recipe as well as it's worth sharing again. It's a comforting casserole that you lot volition desire to serve on a regular basis. Easy to make, you lot tin laid the remainder of your repast piece it bakes inwards the oven. If this recipe doesn't convert lima edible bean skeptics, I don't know what will.
