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.

Delicious. This is a wonderful snack or lunch paired with a whole grain pita and some veggies. I love that there is no oil at all. The lemon gave it a wonderful tang and the seasoning was full of all of my favorite flavors. This is another great one Ladypit, thanks for posting. Will make again for sure.

I made this but not sure what to think - it is crumbly and dry instead of 'spread' type consistency - is it supposed to be like this? Followed recipe but pureed lemon juice w/ the beans by accident - did it make that much of a difference?

I put it all in a bowl and used my stick blender. Ate this with fat free crackers -- hard to believe that this is a guilt-free nosh. —

I couldn't find any lima beans, so I used chick peas. I also put in quite a lot of garlic - and the result was absolutely lovely. Really tasty with bread, and much better than cheese spreads!

Just fabulous! As yogi said, very hummus-like and you really don’t miss the oil, so for me it means eating a scrumptious spread I love as often as I want to - without worrying in the slightest about the fat content! WHAT an indulgence! And SO easy to make! I doubled the garlic and omitted the cayenne pepper (personal taste preferences). Just loved the blend of the other flavours. I’ll be making this often, for healthy and really easy lunches and when preparing food for friends. I hope, ladypit, that you have tried this by now! If not, I’m confident that when you do you’ll love it! Thank you, so much for sharing this recipe!
