National Lima Bean Respect Day

Today is Lima Bean Respect Day. I grew up eating lima beans, so I love them, but I know some who felt this was torture to eat as a kid. Honestly, I just really like beans and peas of all kinds, so I eat them almost every day.

Black Eyed Peas and Lima Beans

1 green pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 onion, chopped
One package frozen lima beans
2 packages frozen black eyed peas
2 t. red wine vinegar
1 c. vegetable broth
1 c. water
1/4 t. crushed red pepper
1/2 t. black pepper
Vegan bacon grease

Saute the green pepper, celery, and onion in the vegan bacon grease in a Dutch oven until softened. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and bring to a boil. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with vegan bacon bits, serve, enjoy!

If you are so inclined (re: daring!) or just love limas, here are several more lima bean recipes for you to try! And, well, because I like black-eyed peas so much, here are a host of black eyed peas recipes, too.
