I love them, but there's even a song about how terrible they are.
“”The scourge of the Earth is small and green—it’s the hideous, loathsome lima bean.”
They are a legume, which means they have more calories than, say, spinach. The keto diet says to avoid legumes altogether.
I hate them. My mom always gave us mixed frozen vegetables (that were then reheated) and lima beans were in that mix. I dreaded those things. I ate the peas, carrots, and corn with no problem, but those lima beans....
I like them and will fix them from time to time.Hubby adores them and would eat them more than we do.I prefer the frozen baby limas,so that's what I buy...when done, a little butter,salt and pepper.Pretty good.
Yep! That's what I remember. Yuck.
Having said that, the dish I tried tonight...wasn't horrible. But I think if the limas hadn't been mixed with tomatoes, feta, parsley, etc., I wouldn't have liked them. It's a texture thing--they're so chalky.
So I can't say I'd never eat them again, but I sure won't go out of my way to eat them.
Greek style limas on the left, with salad and olive bread.
I'm vegetarian and I like lima beans. I have not had them for years but I was at Cracker Barrel the other night and brought a vegetable plate with lima beans and it came with little pieces of ham in it so I could not eat them. The next time I go to the store I plan on buying a frozen package because now I want some.
We're having them as a side dish for Easter.
Your meal looks so good. I love olive bread.
I like lima beans!
Try Butter Beans. I'm not sure what the difference is. I'll have to try them side by side and compare.
Butter beans are a creamy beige-ish color, not green like lima beans. Other than that, there may be slight nutritional differences and taste differences.
I like lima beans but not so much butter beans. I will eat them if put in front of me. I have not had them for years.
I wouldn't want a whole serving of them, but I do like to throw a handful in a batch of vegetable soup.
I haven't watched The Simpson in years, but a Google search suggests the poor lima bean gets mentioned a lot.
I like them. Of course it does matter how they're prepared. I've never had them taste chalky! Something must have gone wrong in the preparation.
Lima beans and butter beans are the same thing! Lima beans are green immature beans and butter beans are mature beige beans (or sometimes the terms are just used interchangeably).
I like them. Not canned ones. I buy the frozen ones. Butter, salt and pepper and it's all good.
The green scourge of the earth is obviously cilantro.
What?! Cilantro is one of the best foods on the planet!
My personal opinion is cilantro tastes like soap. I think there was a study that cilantro was a love or hate taste.
Add me to team hate. It does taste like soap.
