Lima Beans (Baby)

(Beans, Lima, Baby)  Baby lima beans are a smaller, thin-skinned, milder flavored variety; they are not the same as the immature large lima beans.  Baby lima beans are also less starchy than the larger "Fordhook" or "Butter" variety.  Lima beans are believed to have originated in Guatemala and Southern Mexico about 5,000 years ago.  Baby limas are slightly over 20% protein and are very nutritious.  See the nutritional chart below.  The actual size of the baby lima beans can be seen in the photo of the cup to the left.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
