Lima beans have been cultivated since 2,000 BC along the coastal region of Peru. Lima, the capital of Peru, is the place where the early European explorers were believed to have first discovered these beans. Often called "butter beans" because of their starchy yet buttery texture, lima beans have a delicate, mellow flavor that complements a wide array of savory dishes. They are a very good source of dietary fiber and iron and provide a whopping 11g of protein per serving, so if you're wondering how to replace meat in your diet, indulge yourself with the buttery taste of Baby Lima Beans. When combined with a whole grain such as quinoa, sorghum, Kamut® wheat or brown rice, Baby Lima Beans provide protein comparable to that of meat or dairy foods without the high calories or saturated fat. Bob’s Red Mill Baby Lima Beans are outstanding served as a side dish or in casseroles, soups, and stews. You can also serve them as an appetizer sprinkled with seasoning, much like edamame. By the way, these are Bob's favorite beans!

We are always keeping things new and exciting around Bob's Red Mill, so the package you have may vary slightly from the one you see here, but we always promise the same wholesome product.

Very Good
We picked these up from the bulk bins at BRM and are glad we did! After overnight soaking, we cooked and mashed them with a little butter as a side dish to pork roast. Very tasty and satifying! We will defintely buy more soon! Review by Dina / (Posted on 1/11/2014)
