I halved the recipe but only used 1 16 ounce bag of lima beans and that was still too much. There really isn't enough "broth" to make a good soup. It is like ham beans and potato with a little liquid included. And it did not get thick. The taste was pretty bland the first night but lunch the next day it was better. I did use chicken broth instead of water. I don't know that I'd make this again without some tweaks. Read More

Lima are one of my favs, frozen, fresh or dried. I lose the potato...I just gets in the way. Skip the carrots and let the beans stand out. For soup dried bean make for more taste in a well seasoned broth. Try a bit of chicken broth with a tasty ham hock. Just my suggestions. Goes great with a crusty skillet cornbread. Read More
