  • 4 cups water
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 lbs. frozen baby lima beans
  • 1/2 t ground black pepper


Servings 12


Step 1

Place water, bouillon cubes and butter in a 4-quart pot with lid. Cover, place over high heat and bring liquid to a boil. Remove lid and add frozen lima beans. Re-cover and bring back to a boil, about 5 minutes.

Uncover pot, reduce heat to medium high and maintain a moderate boil for 20 minutes, until beans are tender and most of liquid has evaporated, Stir frequently. If liquid evaporates too quickly, add additional water, 1/2 cup at a time, until the full 20 minutes has elapsed.

Maintain water level just below beans' surface so beans don't burn. Season with the black pepper, and serve.
