    They are a good source of Manganese, a trace element that contributes to bone formation and protects cells from free radicals. Lima beans are also a source of protein and provide all eight essential amino acids required for maintaining a healthy diet. Lima beans fibre content could help prevent blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal.

  • + How to use

    They are great to throw into soups and succotash, but for something different, try pureeing with garlic and fresh herbs and use as a delicious,healthy spread or dip.

    The heartiness of lima beans make them a great soup bean, especially when added to a soup that features root vegetables such as carrots, turnips, beets, and/or rutabagas.

    For a twist on the traditional Native American dish succotash, try making lima bean burritos!  Fill corn tortillas with lima beans and corn kernels, and then top with chopped tomatoes, avocado and scallions. Delicioso!
