Lima Beans w Mint & Veggies

Lima Beans w Mint & Veggies
I have to be honest, I have never been a great lover of legumes, even though my mother served heaps of them. But I must say, Lima beans, or Butter beans, are really lovely. I use them in different ways for different dishes. This is one of them 🙂 By the way, I soak the beans overnight, rinse them, and then steam them till they're done. I find this an easy way as you can just walk away and you don't need to worry about them getting burnt 😉 But, you can also buy them cooked of course, which makes this a really quick and hassle free dish.
