Dried beans are an excellent source of protien and other nutrients.
However, many bean recipies I have ask for some type of meat product to
be cooked with the beans. One of my favorite dried beans is the large
dried lima beans. I modified the original receipe and, I believe, have
recreated the original flavor with no fat.
1 package of dried lima beans, soaked overnight
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large carrot diced
1/4 to 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
Put all ingredients except liquid smoke in a crockpot and add enough
water to cover the beans by about 1/2 inch. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours
(the actual time doesn't make a lot of difference). Just before serving,
add the liquid smoke (I find if I add it in the beginning the flavor
cooks out). Add additional water to adjust thickness of the broth.
Serve with homemade ff cornbread. Enjoy!
