Lima Beans, recipe from Spirit

If you are on my Instagram, you will have seen a few pics of food where I mention them coming from "my spirit". Meals that I put together by just listening to my gut, letting my body tell me what it wants to eat instead of following a recipe.


My kids are both at camp, my husband works during the day, so I had free food range! No one to tell me "Ew, that looks gross!", or "Geesh, do we always have to eat healthy?", or "Does that have spirulina in it????".

Here is my combo du jour, made in the crock pot on the porch, since it is 104 outside, and my AC is pumping.

1lb lima beans, soaked overnight and drained
2 garlic cloves, I threw them in whole
1 can coconut milk, and a 1/2 can water that you swizzle to get the rest of the milk
Jalapenos. However many jalapenos you think you need to spice it up, chopped
Brown sugar, a good handful!
Coarse sea salt
Butter, about 5 large chunks :)......

Mix it all up, set the crock to high, 6-7 hours later you will have creamy, slight zippy and sweet at the same time, lima beans.

Serve over rice, sprinkled with parsley and ground pepper.

  1. This sounds really delicious. Except for the jalepenos, which will cause me to fall on the floor screaming.
