This soup was delicious! I couldn't bring myself to use canned lima beans, though. I began cooking my frozen baby limas in water seasoned with Better than Bouillon and after about 7 minutes added the potatoes and onions. At the end, I drained the vegetables and saved all the broth. Sure was glad I did because in order for it to be soup, I ended up returning ALL the broth to the mixture. I was afraid to add the cumin but did. It gave it a very nice flavor. I did omit the coriander because I was out. One of the guests I served this to wanted the recipe, so that says much about how it turned out. Read More

It was nice and easy to make. I added chicken broth to thin it out some. Read More

Bland without doctoring it up. Was too thick to be soup so I added chicken stock. Read More

I too like butter beans. There is a Spanish/Mexican brand of canned butter beans that is superior in my opinion. I changed/enhanced this recipe to my tastes. I have made this with ham per the recipe also with a ham hock but it is also good with bacon. I don't use canned celery soup but instead use fresh celery sauteed in bacon fat along with the chopped onions. Add some minced garlic minced celery leaves a chopped up carrot add 1/4 tsp of celery seed maybe a bay leaf. Yummy. Read More
