Creamed Lima Beans

Cook your lima beans (or peas, if you’d rather) until they are tender.  Be sure to add the seasonings you like, including salt and pepper.  Do not drain the water off the vegetables.  Your measurements depend on how many people you are feeding.  This recipe is good to serve four people. Once the vegetables are tender, mix about 1-2 tablespoons of flour with 1-2 teaspoons of sugar.  The sugar helps the flour mix in better without becoming lumpy. (Some people add equal parts sugar and flour; some add more sugar than flour.  It’s your choice, but in this recipe I’m trying to keep it lower on the calories.)

creamed lima beans

 I have loved Lima Beans since I was a kid. Especially the large Ford Hook Limas. I’ve never eaten them any other way but smothered in butter until now. Creamed Lima Beans is an over the top amazing way to serve limas as a side dish. The cream sauce the limas are nestled in is made using a roux with sauteed onions and garlic powder added for flavor. The sour cream and brown sugar add a smooth creamy texture kicking this side dish up to company-worthy or holiday side dish.

I didn’t think about this until after I had made and devoured them but adding a little crumbled bacon to the top before serving would add a little texture and flavor to this already amazing recipe. We’re going to make Creamed Lima Beans together so let’s gather the ingredients.
