I have always loved Lima beans. They give me indigestion however so I eat them rarely. They really are more nutritious than I knew!

I like to eat Lima Beans but no one in my family likes them, so when I buy them , I buy a can and end up eating them all myself (of course not all in one sitting, but in a two or three day period).

I enjoy the little green lima beans from time to time, but those bigger yellow butter beans not so much. I wish I liked a wider variety of legumes as I realize each one is a powerhouse of nutrition, but I can only manage lentils and green limas.

That surprises me. They seem a lot easier to digest than most other legumes.

I buy them dried, and when I cook with them I usually add them to a soup or stew. I have a carrot and cauliflower soup that I put them in, and if you cook it long enough it's not obvious there are beans in the recipe! emoticon :winking:

I like the green Limas too. We don't eat them often, but occasionally they're in a frozen vegetable mix or a can of bean salad emoticon :smile:

My mom is from the South (in the U.S.) where they are often referred to as "butter beans"; she loves them, so they were on our dinner table a lot when I was a child. It wasn't until I was in my 30's when I realized that butter beans and lima beans are the same thing.
