Do you like lima beans? I do! Hubby doesn’t! I’m not sure if Bug does… he actually hasn’t tried this recipe yet. I got this from Cooking for Baby.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 cup frozen lima beans
- 1 cup frozen corn
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
Melt butter in a saute pan over medium heat. Throw in corn, beans, salt & paprika and saute for 3-4 minutes.
Pour in chicken broth and cover… cook for 10 minutes or until veggies are good and tender.
When it’s all done, put it in a food processor/blender/whatever and mix to a consistency your baby can handle… or just mash with a fork. Serve and/or store. This would make a great finger food if your lima beans are small enough. The beans I used were huge and would most certainly choke my kid, so I mashed ’em pretty good.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
