Do you have a good Lima bean recipe with thyme?

— Lyn Hoeft


So the easiest thing to always think about is using your three aromatics or your mirepois, which as you know are carrots onions and celery. I like to dice it really nice and fine so that it has a rich vegetable flavor and maybe you have some homemade stock if you're using a low sodium stock the new vegetable stocks from or broth from formerly Engine 2. Now plant strong are very good. They're available at Whole Foods Market. I also like the Pacific Brand and they're low sodium is as so very good. But if you want to start any good soup. Oh, I would make a line of being soup that would seem delicious to me. I'm also thinking that after you make the soup. Taking the cooked lima beans and then converting them into a delicious hummus by adding some garlic would be totally totally delicious and I think the color would be beautiful as well. Then that would be nice, you know, when your plant-based part of having people or helping people Embrace. This way of eating is getting them used to eating colorful bright food. You know, I think the first time that I ate kale hummus I was not impressed because it was so green and I thought oh my gosh, but now I look forward to seeing bright greens and bright yellows and bright oranges. So I think the gentleness of the green of the lima bean would be a great hummus if you make that hummus Lynn, I want to see a picture of it. So tag me on social media. I'm on Instagram by the way as Char underscore Nolan and Ola and I'm counting on you.
