Love Me Lima Bean Soup

Love Me Lima Bean Soup

Lima beans are no longer the food your parents used to punish you with. In this tasty, filling soup, the lima beans are creamy and delicious -- we bet you wouldn't even know they were lima beans!




1 cup dried lima beans, soaked overnight (we used Llano Seco)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

2 celery stalks, sliced

2 carrots, chopped

1 onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

4 cups vegetable or chicken broth

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon fresh thyme, leaves removed from stems



Soak the lima beans overnight in a small pot with 4-5 cups water. Drain.

In a large soup pot, heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Saute the celery, carrots and onion for 5 minutes, until softened. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add in the broth, mustard and thyme leaves and stir to combine. Stir the lima beans in. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the lima beans are softened, about 25-40 minutes.Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with bread for dipping if desired.
