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 protein, dietary fiber and iron.

If you're wondering how to replace meat in your diet, indulge yourself with the buttery taste of lima beans. Lima beans are an excellent source of protein, and when combined with a whole grain such as quinoa, sorghum, Kamut® wheat or brown rice, they provide protein comparable to that of meat or dairy foods without the high calories or saturated fat. Lima beans are also an excellent source of iron and dietary fiber. Their high fiber content keeps blood sugar levels from rising too quickly after a meal.

Bob’s Red Mill Large Lima Beans are outstanding served as a side dish or in casseroles, soups, and stews. They're especially tasty cooked with smoked meat. You can also serve them as an appetizer sprinkled with seasoning, much like edamame.
