What? That doesn't sound appetizing? Well it's not for you, it's for your child.
And actually, it's good. Lima beans get a bad rep, but they're tasty! Just like brussel sprouts, and spinach, and Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.
I've been trying to add some variety to my son's diet. All he wants to eat is avocado, Cheerios, and my Blackberry. Next up for the little one is Pumpkin Pasta Soup. After that, Confetti Orzo. And for YOU, Big Person Reading This Post, I'm going to make Carrot Soup. Adults need to eat too. And so does the Easter Bunny.
Corn and Lima Bean Succotash
Recipe adapted from Cooking For Baby
1 T unsalted butter
1 cup lima beans, fresh or frozen
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable broth
Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Add lima beans and corn, season with paprika and salt, and saute for 3-5 minutes.
Add stock, cover and cook until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.
I then processed the mixture in a Cuisinart ever-so-slightly, because I cannot get over my fear that my one-year-old will choke on even the tiniest bite. Please Lord, send him more teeth.
Mmm, baby food. This was actually sweet, buttery and delicious... I licked the spoon.
