1. Summer Salad & Lima Bean Crostini with Shaved San Tumas Valtellina
Toasted bread works, but we recommend grilling it for even more summery flavor. If you have trouble finding the prescribed cheese, pecorino or even good Parmesan is a worth substitute.
2. Lima Bean Bisque
The creaminess in this bisque is brought on by nothing more than the pureed beans themselves. And with plenty of herbs to keep it fresh, it’s a fantastic end to summer soup.
3. Lemony Zucchini, Lima Bean & Chickpea Salad
Perfect for picnics and potlucks, this salad is packed with two of the most nutritionally dense legumes around.
4. Heirloom Tomatoes stuffed with Summer Succotash
All the freshness of summer in just a few bites, juicy tomatoes are filled with lima beans, corn and yellow peppers. To keep it vegan, simply omit the butter in favor of a finishing drizzle of olive oil.
5. Summer Salad of Seared Tuna, Lima Beans & Tomatoes
With both tuna and lima beans, this dish is high in B Vitamins and protein making it a natural stress fighter and energizer. And since limas are also high in fiber, it’s really a complete nutritional field on a plate.
