I can't believe I'm typing this, but it was so good, I can't keep it to myself. I made a crock pot full of butter beans/lima beans on Monday and have been eating them all week. So delicious and simple and literally three ingredients if you count salt and water.
I soaked my lima beans overnight, but you can probably skip it and extend cook time. Either way, I used one 2lb bag of driedlima beans and 8 cups water with a generous pinch of salt.
After soaking in the crockpot overnight, I turned it on low and they were ready by lunch time. I've been putting them in wraps all week like a refried bean or similar, but they would make a great protein-packed side dish or addition to a pot pie. The flavor and texture really lives up to the name "butter bean" because they are absolutely silky without any oil or creamy additions.
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
