      Amazing. I omitted the peppers (due to food allergies) and my kids aren't fond of red onions, so I just let each person add their own. It was great in a roll-up with spinach, cucumbers, and fresh tomatoes. I used frozen limas, and I did have to add a little bit of water to make it spreadable.

      I'm sorry, but this just didn't impress me. It tastes strongly of lemon, cayenne and garlic, all of which overpower the taste of the lima beans. I love lima beans so was disappointed not to be able to taste them.

      I loved this spread, Jen. It is very thick but not so much that it wouldn't spread. I used fresh squeezed lemon juice. The flavors come together well and are very vibrant. Since I have a strange love for lima beans, I will be making this regularly. It is great for lunch or a quick snack. Thanks for posting.
